The Office of Career Coaching and Employer Connections (CCEC) at Ivy Tech Fort Wayne provides services and development to students, alumni, and employers. CCEC combines the efforts of career development and employer engagement to address the needs of both students and employers/workforce in our community. This new, strategic approach will emphasize career readiness practices alongside preparation throughout a student's college experience. Additionally, employers will be engaged to provide valuable input in the student’s experience, while still receiving targeted services to address their workforce needs.
Through CCEC, all Ivy Tech Fort Wayne students will:
- Create a career development portfolio: students will create and showcase to employers a resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, work and learn experiences, and the professional network and connections they have built with support from their CCEC team.
- Work with a career coach: focused, one-to-one relationship to help the student determine the right steps for their career path that match their values, interests, personality and skills.
- Participate in work and learn opportunities: opportunity to build relationships with employers and gain direct experience in careers that interest the student and work alongside industry partners.
