CCAC Academic and Workforce Programs
Community College of Allegheny County is the largest community college in the region and is committed to offering high quality Academic Programs that integrate the liberal arts with technical and professional programs. CCAC also offers essential non-credit programs through the Workforce Development department.
The Workforce & Job Readiness department offers a wide variety of resources and services to help employers find qualified applicants for part-time, internships/co-ops and full-time opportunities. Employers are able to post job opportunities, and manage their recruiting needs, by utilizing College Central Network – CCAC’s Student and Graduates Job Board.
Once an employer registers and is approved in at College Central Network, they are able to post job opportunities, monitor candidates, review resumes, request on-campus interview dates, review portfolios and register for job fairs. Employers are notified by email when job postings are approved.
