Career Services launches online job board

January 18, 2013

Huntington, W.Va. - Mountwest Community & Technical College Career Services has gone live with College Central Network (CCN), an online career management system that will provide job postings to students, alumni, employers and community members.

Students/alumni and employers may access the site to register by visiting www.collegecentral.com/mountwest.

Glen Midkiff, Career Services Coordinator, said the new career management system will be an enormous benefit for students and alumni that are job seeking as well as employers looking for qualified workers.  In addition to job postings, the new website will include a job postings and employer resume search function, a resume builder, career advice articles, podcasts and videos, the ability to search college's secure jobs database, CCN's Jobs Central national job board, and a career document library.

The new job board is very user-friendly, according to Midkiff. All students, alumni, and employers need to do is login, update their profiles, and begin exploring the services available.

“Everyone involved will find it beneficial in using and maintaining an up-to-date account,” Midkiff said. “Both local and national employers will be posting their job openings on CCN and also searching for skilled job applicants.”

In addition to Tri-state area’s specific postings, the national job board has more than a half million jobs – from tens of thousands of unique sources, comprising all of the major job boards as well as newspapers, associations, and company web sites.

To help students and alumni prepare for internships or job hunts, CCN has a library of articles, videos, podcasts full of tips and advice. CCN has tools and templates that make it easy to build industry specific resumes and portfolios.

CCN is the leading provider for over 600 college and university campus career and employment centers in 43 states across the country.
