Employer Services

Connect with HACC Students and Alumni

At HACC, we’re immensely proud of our students and work to help them along their chosen career path. A key component of that is connecting our students with employers that are looking to recruit talented potential employees. HACC offers employers numerous ways to connect with HACC students and alumni, whether online or on one of our five campuses.

HACC follows the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ (NACE) Career Readiness Competencies, which focus on supporting our students' professional growth and development toward achieving their career-related goals. To review NACE’s eight career readiness competencies, please check out What is Career Readiness?

Post a Job

Posting employment opportunities on our College Central Network platform allows you to utilize year-round hiring opportunities, source candidates from all majors for both internships and full-time positions and post part-time opportunities for students, including volunteer and work-study positions.

Simply create an account on the platform. Once you’re approved and your company profile is completed, students will have access to job postings from your company, and you’ll be able to search the résumés of HACC students and alumni to find and contact qualified candidates.

HACC hosts Employer Spotlights so you can create awareness about your organization by tabling at high-traffic locations on our campuses.

This service is offered exclusively to employers with College Central Network accounts

Virtual Employer Information Sessions

Virtual Employer Informational Sessions feature presentations by company representatives about the featured industry, teaching students what to expect when entering the field. Presentations may include general information about your organization, specific details about your team and types of jobs students can expect to find. Question and answer sessions follow the presentations.

Virtual Employer Information Sessions are held via Zoom. Representatives can share their screens and engage with students through chat.

HACC’s mentoring program helps students and alumni find mentors for career networking opportunities and gain valuable insights for career exploration. Mentors determine how many times they want to be contacted and which experiences and topics they feel comfortable offering. Mentees may have the opportunity to shadow a mentor at their place of employment. Mentorship is a great way to introduce students and alumni to your company.

Please contact Kathleen Carusone (Dormer), J.D., internship and experiential learning opportunities coordinator, at ktcaruso@hacc.edu, if you are interested in becoming a mentor, or sign up through the College Central Network.
