Career Help

LearnUp is a social network where you learn skills directly from employers and professionals, and get hired. Also check out  http://www.cacareercafe.com.

To explore job opportunities go to:


Work Experience

So maybe you’re the kind of student who learns by doing. Or maybe you just like to work and gain experience that way. If so, we have just the thing for you: WRKEX or Work Experience. Work Experience is a course like any other.

Workforce Development

Workforce Development strives to improve the college’s capacity to serve students, employers and our community through innovation and entrepreneurship. Our Workforce Development program obtains the resources necessary to pursue College strategies by aggressively seeking funds and in‐kind resources from outside sources, including grants from private and public sources, contracts, and fees.
