Welcome to the Career Connections Center
We are your one stop for free career resources and services! Our services are available for Westmoreland students and alumni.
Westmoreland’s Career Connections Center (CCC) is here to help students put their education to work.
The CCC staff collaborate with students to:
- Identify opportunities to develop career competencies and readiness skills
- Write their resumes and prepare for interviews
- Explore major and career options using skills and aptitude assessments
- Develop job search and networking strategies
- Identify job shadowing, internship, and career opportunities
- Connect with employers and professional organizations
- Develop career goals and a plan for achieving identified goals
