Career & Job Placement Services
Welcome to Career & Job Placement Services at Houston Community College
Houston's dynamic job market rivals most major cities in the United States in its diversity and economic output. Houston employers are increasingly in need of skilled and diverse potential employees in their talent pipelines in order to project economic success many years into the future. Career & Job Placement Services, consists of six Career Centers strategically placed throughout the HCC system in order to support students interested in entering the workforce while enrolled in college. We highly recommend students view our section on Tuition Assistance as this benefit offered by most employers is important for students/alumni to utilize while enrolled in college.
Career Center Office Hours
Career & Job Placement Services is open Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. as well as on Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Students/alumni are encouraged to schedule an appointment with any of the Career Centers to receive internship/job search assistance and to learn about other services and resources. Scheduled appointments can be accomplished within the Virtual Career Center and will require a resume to be uploaded to the student/alumni profile.
We highly recommend that students/alumni come during Drop-In Hours on Mondays and Tuesdays, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., 2 p.m. - 4 p.m., as there is not a requirement to have a scheduled appointment. Drop-In appointments usually last 15 minutes and are intended to be brief as questions regarding resumes/cover letters, upcoming job fairs & events, job searching, and more can be covered by a Career Services Specialist.
HCC contributes to the Houston job market in diverse ways as the institution serves 100,000+ students every year. Registering for all HCC Career Fairs/Workshops and posting internships and jobs all takes place within the Virtual Career Career. The Career Centers are interested in facilitating campus interviews in order to establish talent pipelines into all industries! This job placement process renders faster and more tangible results than posting a job and waiting to see who applies. Schedule your campus interviews today!
