Career Development Center


Services for Employers

We encourage local employers to use the many free services available to them through the SFSC Career Center. If you are looking for qualified candidates for job openings in your company, we can help connect you to applicants from SFSC and the community.

All Career Development Center job placement services are free to students, alumni, employers, and the general public.

Some specific ways we can assist you are:

  • Providing you with a free account you can use to post your job openings on the College Central Network’s job board at no chargColllege Central Networke, and facilitating referrals of qualified job seekers to you. Job postings can be accessed by local students and job seekers in the College Central Network across the U.S.
  • Search resumes posted on the College Central Network by students and other job seekers to identify strong hiring prospects. Contact them through the College Central Network to follow-up on their interest in your open positions.
  • Ensuring that referred job applicants will come to an interview with an appropriate professional resume, and that they will contact you via the method you specify.
  • Providing applicants limited access to computers, the Internet, and FAX services to facilitate communication.
  • Giving you limited access to computers, the Internet, and FAX services as well as to a private conference room at SFSC for your use for occasional on-site interviews with potential employees.
  • Connecting you to sources of current labor market data.
  • Making students aware of opportunities in your business not only for employment, but also for internships and Co-Op experiences.

If you would like to post a job vacancy on the College Job Board, create an account and register. SFSC employment specialists will review your registration and contact you when it is approved. You can then post your own job openings on College Central Network and make them available to job seekers for as long as you desire.
