Information and Services for Faculty
The MCC Career Counselors are here to support and enhance the learning that takes place in the classroom. We are happy to consult with you about how career related information can be integrated into your curriculum and to design a classroom presentation or special program that address these specific needs. In addition, the following programs/services are available to you.
MCC’s Optimal Resume - recruiting software makes finding the best talent for your business easy. Employers can post job and internship opportunities on the site and students can apply for these positions and answer basic interview screening questions on line as well. Employers can access Optimal Resume to create their account and post their internship and employment opportunities for Middlesex Community College students.
We encourage you to regularly review the postings that may be of interest to the students and alumni from your academic program or discipline. Additionally,the Career Services team will keep you informed via e-mail of new positions and on-campus recruitment opportunities that we believe are particularly appropriate to your students and alumni.
Classroom Visits - The Career Counselors welcome the opportunity to go into the classroom to discuss career and job search topics. Typical workshops that faculty routinely ask us to present include: Understanding the Career Development Process, How to Choose A Major, Developing an Effective Resume and Cover Letter, The Basics of Informational Interviewing, Behavioral Interviewing Skills, (including mock interviews) and administering and interpreting career assessments. If you are interested in having a workshop done in your class, please contact any of the members of the Career Services staff.
On-Line Career Resources - Counselors research and connect faculty and students to a range of self-assessment, career exploration and job search websites.
