Career Services: They give alumni a license plate frame for their cars.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Great environment to go to school and it is very easy to get your classes and a beautiful view.

4 College Student

Career Services: They have a lot of schools that go to recruit new students.To encourage them to get higher education,

3 College Senior

Career Services: I don't know if I've just been talking to the wrong people or if I had bad luck with a counselor but they weren't particularly helpful when trying to help me find a future college to transfer to. They didn't know anything about computer science related fields so they weren't much use beyond recommending the general state colleges that everyone seems to go to anyway.

Aside from that I don't think I've ever seen them advertise or help students with jobs, if they do then I have no idea where to go to get more information about it. They do have many days where representatives from other colleges come and sit around to give students who are interested information and all sorts of stuff so that's great. I believe they call it a college fair.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Decent career and transfer help available. The counselors are good, but not always available.

As a community college that is focused on transfers, Crafton Hills does not offer extensive career services. However, there are some options, and it is being improved. More involvement with businesses is planned, with the intent of developing career services into a larger part of what is offered at the College. What has and is being done is somewhat limited in scope. The extent of Crafton’s career services has been a job-posting board and on-campus advertising for some local recruiting fairs, which isn't a very high level of involvement. However, it has evolved into a job book where there is tracking of local jobs and information from the counselors about what is in the area. While there have always been statistics and assessments for students interested in a specific career, workshops have been added to teach students basic skills required for getting a job.

The newer programs are starting on two fronts. First, there has been a push for more internships and service learning. Second, there is a counselor who has taken on the task of developing Crafton’s career services in an effort to meet the school’s overall goal of being the premier community college in the state. The internships are largely unpaid positions that offer college credit and are overseen by the College. These will also help develop a critical piece of a budding career: employment entries for students' resumes and applications. In addition, the school website has started to feature job listings, a system still in its infancy. The future of Crafton’s career services is changing, that much is clear. There are indications that they are seeking grants to develop the program. Hopefully, the limited offerings will be augmented over time.
