Do you know organizations wanting to hire students:

In addition to any department-level supports, referring employers to the Career Placement Office is an excellent way to centralize our services so students and employers are clear about where to look. Consider sharing this with employers that contact you with opportunities:

The Career Placement Office at Saddleback College offers employers across industries several options to recruit students throughout the year. Employers can view these at https://www.saddleback.edu/jobs/employers. 

* Job Postings on Gaucho Jobs - FREE postings
* On-Campus Recruitment (OCR) - FREE campus recruiting visits
* Career Fair - Annual event held in April

By encouraging all employers to post opportunities in Gaucho Jobs, all students have equal opportunity and access to jobs.
