College Student

Career Services: I am still an undergraduate, so I have not necessarily experienced these to form a valid opinion on the subject. I have however had some experience with the career center when I first started at the college. I would say it was very helpful getting started toward my major of choice.

College Freshman

Career Services: im really not sure about this one

4 College Sophomore

2 College Junior

Career services are offered at CCBC, and there are plenty of resources for students to find the right internship, job, or career. For students seeking help from the career services office, they must take a career test, choose a program of interest, research the career, locate job openings, and submit a resume. The staff of the career services office will assist anyone in finding the right career. In addition, all freshmen are required to take a course that teaches the "in's" and "out's" of being a new college student.

There are job fairs throughout the semester, where employers seek new graduates. The path to success starts with attending these job fairs and weighing all of the opportunities that are offered. Employers from hospitals, business firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies come to CCBC to recruit new future employees. If contacted during one of these job fairs, students must keep in touch with the employer or agency, continue working on getting a degree at CCBC, and seek assistance from the career counselors. Most of the job fairs are sponsored by the Community College of Baltimore County, Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, and Baltimore County Office of Workforce Development.
