The reward of education for many students is finding a suitable job. The Job Search Assistance Office is staffed by an ESC advisor who can help you locate both full-time and part-time work while you are in school, as you prepare to graduate, and even as an alumnus. When the ESC Advisor is not on campus, students can use the Job Search computer available in the Student Commons, to identify job opportunities locally or across the state. Local job openings are posted on a weekly basis on the Job Placement and Student Services bulletin boards. If you need help finding a job, be sure to stop by the job Placement Office!
