Howard Community College offers both on-campus recruiting and virtual recruiting options for employers. On-campus recruiting allows employers to advertise employment and internship opportunities in areas of high student traffic at the college. Employers can also elect to host a recruiting event either through Handshake or a virtual platform of their choice. All recruiting events will be promoted across campus to students. Register for a recruiting event.
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.
