CCEC also hosts or co-organizes career development events for students and the community. The CCEC staff are available to assist students, alumni, and community members 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday, or by appointment.

The CCEC Programs Manager at KRC is available (Monday through Friday, by appointment) to provide career counseling, effective résumé writing, job search and interview preparation assistance, as well as to administer various career interest assessment instruments to individuals. Career development workshops, campus and community presentations, and mock interviews may also be arranged. At KBC, career counseling is available through Student and Enrollment Services and the Youth Job Training Program.
Employment and Volunteer Opportunities
Employers and various resource organizations contact the CCEC to post a range of part-time and full-time job, internship, career development, international and volunteer opportunities. These opportunities are posted on boards outside CCEC at KRC, as well as through an online service at www.collegecentral.com/kpc. This online service enables registered KPC users to access numerous career development articles, videos and podcasts; build online résumés and career portfolios; apply online for jobs and internships that are targeted specifically to KPC students and alumni, as well as access additional regional and national job and internship postings
Cooperative Internship Program (CIP)
Through the CIP, qualified students have the opportunity to earn academic credit in their major while acquiring practical skills. With guidance from KPC faculty and the CCEC, students may integrate academic study with a planned, supervised work experience in the community—allowing them to test classroom skills in a professional setting and explore career opportunities.
Service-Learning and Civic Engagement
The KPC Service-Learning and Civic Engagement Program, also coordinated in the CCEC, connects KPC faculty and students to community-based organizations in order to address community needs and enhance student learning. Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with academic rigor and student reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. The CCEC houses an extensive service-learning library of resources for faculty, students and community-based organizations.
