Career Connections Center

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.

Career Skill Education

Find your Fit: We offer career readiness and skills assessments at no charge.

Internships: Westmoreland students are encouraged to participate in work-based learning experiences such as job shadowing, internships/practicums and/or campus work-study positions (if eligible and available).

Career Development: Since career development is a lifelong process, the earlier you get started making intentional decisions about your future, the better prepared you will be! Our job developer can help!

Resume Review: Creating an effective resume is critical in the job search process. An effective resume will help you land an interview and the job of your dreams. The Career Connections Center team would love to help you enhance your resume.

Job Board: All current students and alumni are eligible to register and use the Westmoreland County Community College online job board, Purple Briefcase. Alumni: contact Career Connections if you have problems setting up your account.
