Connecting your workforce needs to our Stark State talent

The Career Services team makes recruiting and networking with Stark State students simple and effective!

OPTION 1 – Online Job Board: College Central Network
Start by creating a request for an employer account on our online job board, College Central Network (CCN) by following the steps below. CCN, Stark State’s way to connect employers with talent, is a FREE platform that lets you post full-time, part-time, internship, apprenticeship and co-op opportunities for our students and alumni to access and apply. You are also able to search for students in your majors of interest who have uploaded their resume so you can conduct direct recruiting. These positions are marketed to all of our campuses, and you are able to choose specific majors to target. You can also view and register for our upcoming events and career fairs. Creating a CCN account is the gateway to all of Stark State’s additional recruiting opportunities!

How to register for CCN and post jobs:

  1. Read our recruiting guidelines and submit the disclaimer below. You’ll enter your name and email and check the box to verify you’ve read the guidelines, then click submit.
  2. You’ll be redirected to CCN’s employer platform. Click “Create Account” to enter information about yourself and your company, then click register.
  3. Your request will be sent to our office and will be approved within 1-2 business days. Once your account has been approved, you’ll receive notification that you are now able to post jobs on the platform. Quick tip: when posting a job, you’ll be asked what majors you’re interested in; please be sure to select a major or several majors, as any student who has declared that major in CCN will receive a direct email informing them that a job opportunity has been posted for which they may be qualified.
  4. Once you’ve posted the job, the request for approval will be sent to our office and we’ll approve the posting within 1-2 business days.

OPTION 2 – Weekly “Hot Jobs” Email Blast
Each week, Career Services emails all current SSC students as well as alumni with a list of highlighted “Hot Jobs.” These positions come from employers who’ve recently posted on CCN and reached out to our office to ask us to push out their opportunity. After your position is posted, please feel free to email us at careerservices@starkstate.edu with the job ID# and posted position title, and we’ll include your position in our email blast. We highlight just 10 positions per week on a first-come, first-served basis. If our list is full for the current week, we’ll highlight your position the following week and let you know.

OPTION 3 – Recruiting Tables
Are you interested in networking with students face-to-face? Come to campus and host a recruiting table! Spend a few hours promoting your company’s open positions and upcoming events in a high-traffic location that best suits your preferred audience. We offer this opportunity during fall and spring semesters. Please email your requested date to careerservices@starkstate.edu a minimum of two weeks in advance. We’ll let students and faculty know you’ll be on campus, along with your table location and times. Many employers choose to set up their table just as they would at a career fair to gain maximum student attention.

OPTION 4 – Employer Mock Interviews
We invite you to participate in an employer mock interview day in our Career Services office on main campus. It’s a great way to develop brand recognition and connect with students while helping them develop crucial professional skills through a 30-minute practice interview. Space is limited and these slots fill up quickly, so please email nharrington@starkstate.edu to place your name on the list.

OPTION 5 – On-campus Career Fairs
We offer a variety of boutique and major-wide career fairs based on in-demand jobs in Stark and Summit counties. For a full list of offerings and to register for these events, please log in to CCN at www.collegecentral.com/starkstate/.
