Meet the CEC staff - student edition!

October 15, 2014

While the Career Education Center (CEC) employs several full-time staff members, our office would not be able to operate as effectively in serving you if not for our student employees.

These students assist with our day-to-day operations, including scheduling appointments, responding to emails, posting job opportunities to CareerLink and CA$H, and creating and posting marketing materials.
