About Career Services
Career Services provide career advising to students and potential students, provide tools and information for students to be successful in their job search in the way of resume reviews, interview feedback, and labor market information. Additionally, this office will assist students in the college transfer process as well as connect students to personnel at RCCC that will coordinate co-operative education experiences for qualified students.
We offer individual and group career advising and other career exploration tools to help students make decisions about their education and career path. We explore career paths based on personality, interests, and values. We encourage students to look inward and learn more about themselves in order to venture outward toward their future.
Career Services Resources
College Central Network
College Central Network (CCN) is the online career job bank and employment resource system Rowan-Cabarrus uses to connect students, alumni, and local businesses. CCN is accessible 24-hours a day, seven days a week at no charge to the student, alumni or employer. Students can search for jobs; create a résumé and have it reviewed, uploaded and posted to their account; listen to job search podcasts; create and maintain a portfolio; and access career advice information. Employers can post jobs and review posted résumés and portfolios. Students and employers must register with CCN in order to access the system.
Work-Based Learning allows students to gain hands-on work experience with a local employer in their program of study and earn academic credit by participating in the work-based learning program. Work-based learning is available for curriculum students who have completed one semester (12 semester hour credits), have a minimum GPA of 2.25 and are registered for 3 semester hour credits during the semester of co-op experience.
