Welcome to the Employers of Our Current and Graduated Students of CCSU!
The Career Development Office (CDO) is the Career Support Center when it comes to employment opportunities for our students (incoming to alumni). The CDO offers a variety of opportunities for potential employers to meet students. We are here to help you find that ideal candidate for your company or organization's part or full-time opening. Not only do we allow job postings through the preferred platform HANDSHAKE; we also offer opportunities through internships; practicums or co-operative work experiences. Our department will also help you with any employment needs you may have while assisting our students moving toward landing that dream position.
One of the most common ways today’s job seekers find employment opportunities is through online resources. There are multiple job boards out there, as well as apps, aggregators, social media channels, networking groups and staffing company websites from which to choose. The good news is they provide plenty of listings. The bad news? It’s easy to be overwhelmed by all of the options. So, you may ask where are the best places to post your next opening? Well, we’ve done the research to help you figure out the best sites to use for finding a candidate and have broken them down by those that are more general and the specialized services. Be sure to peruse our Program & Events sections for more information of happenings on campus that you would surely want to attend!
The Career Development Office also offers other interactive events both virtual and on-campus. Whether you wish to attend one of our career fairs (of which there are several each year from generalized to specialized sectors); to On the GO with CDO which is a scaled-down small forum “meet and greet” for you to introduce your business to Central students; conduct interviews on campus or off; or just send out a high-volume e-mail to a specialized major to fill that open vacancy we can help you.
If there is something that we may do to assist you, please contact us! Our office is located on the first floor of Frank J. DiLoreto Hall, Suite 101; our e-mail address is Careers@ccsu.edu; or if you just wish to make a telephone call, we may be reached at 860-832-1615. You may even schedule an appointment to meet virtually. All you need to do is go to our main page and click on the “Schedule an Appointment” box and choose MISCELLANEOUS MEETING. Complete the relevant information and click Book! Please remember when scheduling a virtual appointment to include your phone number and your preferred technology platform (i.e., Teams, WebEx, etc) for one of our specialists to contact you.
Again, welcome to the Career Development Office's website, we look forward to working with you and also thank you for giving our students an employment opportunity!
