Thank you for your interest in Columbia College. The Center for Career Coaching & Professional Development is here to help you fill your recruiting needs, by identifying a strong pool of candidates and developing a solidbrand presence on campus. We offer a variety of ways to develop company recognition, both online and in person.
Columbia College utilizes C2Success, a national recruiting network sponsored by NACElink©, to connect you to our outstanding students and alumni. This free service allows you to post unlimited job opportunities, search student resumes, and register for events. To further promote your opportunities, positions posted in C2Success will also be highlighted on our student intranet and strategically communicated to key faculty, staff, and student organizations.
We also offer the ability to conduct on-campus interviews and information sessions, help develop relationships with faculty, and allow opportunities to serve as guest speaker to our student clubs and organizations. These targeted recruitment efforts will put you in the audience of the most focused, developing professionals.
Career fairs provide recruiters a unique and convenient opportunity to meet with a large number of motivated and interested students and alumni. Attending a career fair is an excellent way to maximize your recruiting potential. Every spring, Columbia College participates in Career Connections, a joint career fair in conjunction with other South Carolina Independent Colleges & Universities (SCICU) member institutions.
Columbia College, ranked as one of the top comprehensive undergraduate colleges in the South, equips our graduating professionals to compete for the demands of the modern marketplace.
