HCC Co-op & Internship Program
The Houston job market is more competitive than it has been in recent memory. Even so, employers believe there is a skills-gap; students are graduating from high school/college without the proper skill-set needed by the Houston economy. Houston Community College is leading the solution to this problem by investing in its Career Services process and making job placement a cornerstone of student success.
The HCC Co-op & Internship Program (C.I.P.) is a new service that is managed by Career & Job Placement Services at Houston Community College. This program is designed to connect students and employers via a matching/placement service that entails a formal online process that both students and employers have to complete. Students enrolled in the Centers of Excellence Workforce Programs are enrolled at HCC in order to gain a skill/trade so to begin working in their respective fields of interest. C.I.P. provides these students with peace of mind as the program partners with employers to schedule interviewing opportunities, on an ongoing basis on the respective HCC campus, for current openings as these employers would like to make a hiring decision very soon. Employers in the relevant COE industries have expressed interest in establishing talent pipelines via C.I.P. leading to direct hires.Join the HCC Co-op & Internship Program
