Find A Job Through College Central Network (CCN)
MCC’s job posting site, College Central Network (CCN), is for currently-enrolled MCC students and MCC graduates. Jobs are posted on our CCN site by the employers, and students apply for the posted positions via CCN. To be eligible for Career Services online job search database access, matriculated MCC students should have at least a 2.0 GPA. If this is your first semester at MCC or your GPA is not at 2.0, we have another option. Please make an appointment to come in and meet with us so we can work together with the goal of balancing your employment needs with your academic demands. Call 732-906-2595 or stop by West Hall, 2nd Floor to make your appointment.
Apply For a Job In 3 Easy Steps:
Make sure your CCN Profile is written appropriately (i.e. capitalize your address correctly). Remember, your Profile is your introduction to the employer and if you don’t present yourself as a professional, the employer will not see you as one. Text-speak (e.g. all lower-case letters and abbreviations) is not acceptable as professional business communication.
If you do not match the job requirements posted by the employer, don’t apply! The requirements/qualifications are there for a reason. Instead of applying, if the job sounds great to you, take note of the listed skills & education required and then make a plan for how you will earn those qualifications so you will be a viable candidate for a position like this one in the future.
We try to review and approve registrations and resumes quickly but depending on the time of year/semester, it may take longer. Faster way: You are always welcome to make an appointment to meet with Career Services, and we will process your request during your appointment.
Employers post these positions themselves. The information posted is all the information Career Services knows about the position.
Most employers will contact you directly if they are interested in offering you the opportunity to interview. Please let us know if you are called for an interview.
You apply to jobs that are not on the CCN site by carefully following all stated instructions for applying. Of course, Career Services will still help you prepare your resume if you’d like.
Please also note:
- It is really important that you verify that all contact information on your resume (email address and phone numbers) is current and accurate. If you change your cell phone or email address, be sure to update that info on your resume prior to having it sent to an employer.
- It is equally important that you monitor voicemail and email at least daily during your job search. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS respond immediately when an employer contacts you! Even if you have already accepted another position, please return the call promptly and thank the employer for their interest in you. Not only is that professional behavior, but with today’s job market, you just never know who might be your boss in the future ….
- Please ensure that all communications (emails, phone calls, letters) are professional in format and content, and all written correspondence is free of typos and misspellings.
