We support students as they explore and develop their career goals and help them transition from the Academic setting to the Employment arena. Aside from major and career exploration, we also assist students in the formation of resumes and cover letters; as well as networking and interviewing skills and techniques.
The MVCC Career Services does not hire students, but we can help you with your job searching, both on and off campus.
The MVCC Career Services Offices is part of a consortium of 6 local colleges which features an employment website, Purple Briefcase. This site features local employers seeking local graduates but also has links to searches throughout the nation and internationally.
MVCC Career Services also strongly advises that their students post their resumes to https://app.purplebriefcase.com/pb/account/login?s=MVCC, so that they can search employers and vice versa.
There is no easy way to discover what would be a good career match. What your interests are, how your values show, what your financial needs are, etc., are some of the questions that help you get to the answer. Working with the Career Services Office can help you explore those variables.
Major specific Internships are coordinated through the Academic Centers, so speak to your Academic Advisor. The Career Counselor in the Career Services Office may be able to help you search for other experiential opportunities.
There are 2 pathways for students to work on campus, Federal Work Study and MVCC Student Assistant. If you have been awarded Federal Work Study through Financial Aid, please contact Financial Aid to start the Work Study process. If you have not been awarded Work Study, Student Assistant positions would be your option.
Student and non-student employment opportunities are listed through MVCC Human Resources at https://mvcc.csod.com/ats/careersite/search.aspx?site=1&c=mvcc
