The Career Center (located in the Counseling & Career Center) helps students explore careers and programs of study through self-assessments, offers assistance with refining job search techniques, and provides access to job postings and career fairs.
Career Exploration and Assessment
Students can complete online self-paced assessments, explore careers, and gather information on education options through FOCUS. Students who take advantage of this planning tool make better decisions about their educational goals and learn how to manage their careers. First time users must create an account using NHCC as the Access Code when prompted. For more information, review the FOCUS presentation.
The Career Center helps students connect occupation interests to related programs of study. Transfer guides outlining transfer requirements of four-year degrees at other Minnesota colleges and universities are available in the Advising Center for students who plan to continue their education. Contact Advising if you need assistance with transferring.
NHCC hosts a career fair each spring and fall, and holds a number of recruiting activities with individual employers throughout the year.
College Central Network (CCN) enables students and alumni to review job postings, build a resume, and access resources to assist in the job search process. Additionally, students who are registered in CCN can learn more about upcoming job fairs and read profiles on employers participating in future events. To use the CCN system, students and alumni must register using their StarID number as the Access ID.
