On Campus Employment Events
The Career Development Center helps employers and students connect. We meet a mutual need and take the guesswork out of creating a job-match using the following sources:
- Job Fair
- Employers on Campus
- On Campus Employment
- On Campus Bulletin Boards
- Online Job Postings
- Online Interview Preparation
The college hosts an online resume/job posting resource. Register for the virtual job board by visiting Carroll Links. Once registered, you can view current open positions. You can also create a setting to be notified when positions of interest are posted. Carroll Links also offers a resume writer, job search articles on The Career Coach, podcasts and portfolio development information.
The 2016 Annual Job Fair is Wednesday, April 13 from 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Great Hall. Employers will be highlighting seasonal, temporary, permanent, part- and full-time employment opportunities with local employers, so come prepared with your resume, a smile and a handshake! Click the above link in February for a list of participating companies.
Most weeks during Fall and Spring Terms, an employer is on campus recruiting students for employment. Employers are located in the K Building lobby on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Carroll makes no endorsements or guarantees about positions listed through the Career Development Center. The college is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions or other aspects of off-campus employment. It is the responsibility of applicants to research the integrity of the organizations to which they are applying.
Since Carroll is unable to research each company, the following practices are recommended:
- Do not attend an interview in a private residence.
- Beware of ads that offer large salaries for almost no work.
- Avoid companies offering jobs without having met you.
- Beware of a company that wants money for training, application fees, etc.
- Do not release bank or financial information to a company.
- Companies should not send payment in advance of work.
- If it sounds too good to be true, do more investigating.
