Howard Community College currently offers both on-site and virtual recruiting options. All recruiting events will be advertised through a variety of channels, including but not limited to: Handshake, on the HCC website, and to appropriate academic departments. Virtual recruiting sessions can be conducted through Handshake, or employers can set-up their own recruiting event through their preferred online platform (e.g., Zoom, Google Teams, etc.). For more information please contact David Tirpak, email@example.com. Register for recruiting.
Educate Students about Careers
Howard Community College values the contribution that professionals from the community can make in helping students with their career development. There are several programs in place for those connections to occur, and we invite you to consider participating in them.
- Mentoring/Shadowing: A short-term program for students to be matched with professionals based on their career interests. Over the course of two-four 30-minute virtual appointments, the mentor will discuss what their work is like, learn about the student’s goals, and offer their perspective on how students can prepare for future entry into the career. Howard Community College has partnered with Parker Dewey for employers to post micro-internships for our students. Register as an employer and post micro-internships.
- Micro-internships: Short-term projects that students can complete in 30-40 hours.
- Internships: Traditional longer-term experiential learning opportunities for student to apply their classroom learning in a work setting.
- Career Information Series: Panel presentations or a singular virtual meeting to give students the opportunity to learn about your career field.
To partner with us to help students “get there from here” please let us know which program(s) interest you. We will contact you as opportunities arise.
HCC does not screen job applicants in any way. They may or may not be enrolled as HCC students.
HCC provides an opportunity for companies and employers to inform students of job/internship opportunities. The participation of a company in a career event (e.g., Job Fair, Internship Fair, On-Campus Recruiting), or in our online job/internship database, Handshake, does not imply any HCC endorsement of the company, its products, or services. Job seekers should evaluate information carefully and take whatever action is deemed appropriate.
The Counseling and Career Services office at Howard Community College discourages students from entering into businesses that require paying a fee or buying products as a condition of employment or whose pay structure is based on a multilevel commission basis. Representatives of multilevel marketing companies are prohibited from recruiting students or promoting their business or products on campus (e.g., On-Campus Recruiting, Internship Fair, Job Fair) or via our online job database, Handshake. Counseling and Career Services reserves the right to block an employer, permanently or temporarily, from engaging in recruitment activity that is deemed unethical or unprofessional.
HCC will not support employment or internship opportunities whereby there is a connection with the cultivation, production, sale, or distribution of marijuana or Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-infused products. This is in accordance with the Congressional Bill H.R.3614, section 1213 that indicates, “Amends the Higher Educational Act of 1965 (HEA) to bar an institution of higher education from receiving funds or any other Federal financial assistance, including any federally funded or guaranteed student loans, unless it certifies to the Secretary that it has adopted and implemented a program to prevent the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol by students and employees.” This prohibition is to ensure HCC’s compliance with federal law.
