Employer Meet & Greet April 3rd!

The Employer Meet & Greet is an opportunity for students and employers to interact for job placement. Employers in the IWV that have a need for Information Technology, Cyber Security, Business, Office Technology and Web Professional employees meet our students as potential applicants.

The Computer Technology Exploration Club (CTEC) student club sponsors the Employer Meet & Greet event. Last year some students were hired on the spot while others were scheduled for interviews. Whether students are interesting in finding out what types of jobs and positions are available in the future or if they are graduating and looking for employment, this is a great event for all students to attend. CTEC will be hosting a resume and interview preparation session on March 30 before the event to help students have quality resumes and interview skills.

The event will be held from 4:00-7:00pm in the LRC lobby to allow day and evening students to attend. Light refreshments will be served sponsored by Bellevue University.

If you are an employer who would like to take part in this event, please let us know.

Cerro Coso offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for students looking for career training or workforce development. We also provide numerous courses to help you enhance job skills and career development.

  • Career Development
  • Job Skills Training
  • Occupational Training
  • Workforce Education

Work-based learning is at the heart of hands-on instruction and application of real-world experience in the classroom. By providing students with experiences in a working environment, they are able to put their education to practical use. The introduction of real-world experiences into the classroom helps students become familiar with the expectations of the employer/client and gives them many opportunities for problem solving. These skills and experiences enable students to enter into the workforce with real expectations of how they will conduct themselves as professionals.

Faculty members are able to utilize work-based learning projects to introduce and illustrate concepts that can be addressed in an applicable manner, with the student applying those concepts to a task at hand. This input-to-outcome transference of information enables faculty and students to see the direct result of their education and how they can apply education when they are on the job. Work-based learning provides faculty a rich and meaningful method of instruction, one that has proven to be invaluable to students.
