THE CENTER FOR CAREER SERVICES AND COOPERATIVE EDUCATION
Location: Morehead Hall, Room 337
Phone: (973) 655-5194
The Center for Career Services and Cooperative Education provides a comprehensive approach to career development and experiential education. Through one-on-one counseling, interest testing, online tools, workshops, internships, job fairs, and experiential course work through co-operative education, central office counselors and college/school career advisors help students apply classroom learning to the workplace, prepare for their future and continue steps in their professional development. Additionally, each year the office attracts a wide variety of employers for on-campus recruitment and annual career fairs. In workshops and through individual counseling and vocational testing, students learn how to set appropriate goals and how to conduct a subsequent job search. Students are encouraged to begin using the Center early in their college years. The office has a library with information about careers, employer and employment trends. Students are urged to visit the office home page at www.montclair.edu/careerservices to listen to online workshops, begin self-assessment activities, learn about careers and register for on and off campus jobs.

ON-CAMPUS STUDENT EMPLOYMENT
Most campus offices have positions available for student employees. Positions are listed online through Career Directions, the Center's online job listing system for on and off campus positions. Go to www.montclair.edu/careerservices/studentservices/careerdirections.html to register.
Students who have received Federal Work-Study awards can utilize these awards for on-campus employment. Other students can be hired as student assistants and need not have been granted financial aid. In either case, all on-campus positions, available to enrolled students, are listed through Career Directions.
