There are many job and career advancing opportunities waiting for this year’s graduating class.
Graduating students can check the website Indeed.com for job and internship opportunities. This is useful for both students who are transferring to a four year institution and students who are in search of a job. The students can type the city they live in. It will show a list of job and internship opportunities in that city. The list also shows the requirements and pay rate, if it is a paid internship or job and company reviews.
Over the past year, COD has created a free online job board for its students called Job Hub. It is powered by PurpleBriefcase.com. Students can log in with their COD email and password. By making an account, students have access to jobs and internships in and around the college. There are also tools that help with resumé – building, interviewing skills, building a network with employers and alumni and researching a preferred industry. Students can activate their free account via http://CODjobHUB.com using their COD email.
For more information students can always visit COD’s Career and Workforce Solutions Center in the Administration building at the Palm Desert campus.
