Where do I go for information about careers?

First, schedule a meeting with your Academic Advisor, who can help with choosing a major and a career path, including one-on-one  sessions that provide counseling and resources designed to clarify and meet your goals. Then, the Office of Career Success can help with
more detailed information about local career options, additional self-assessment and career planning tools, job shadows, and internships. Individual sessions and group workshops are offered throughout the semesters and during the January break.

What if I need help with a résumé or interview coaching?

The Office of Career Success provides individual coaching on a wide variety of career topics and job search skills, including assistance regarding a career change. Students can e-mail to set up an appointment.

How do I make connections with local employers?

All CoGreene students are eligible for a free account with Purple Briefcase. Local employers post job and internship opportunities on this platform, which students can access from their MyCGCC page. Students can get one-click account activation by e-mailing from their college email account. The Office of Career Success often partners with faculty members to present networking events with local employers. These events are posted in Purple Briefcase as well as advertised on the College’s social
media channels.
