Career Development for Students
Learn about resources available from the GCC Connect team to support students on the pathway to employment. The team works to connect students with local employment and internship opportunities, and can provide valuable assistance to your students in areas such as resume writing, cover letters, and interviewing skills.

Another important part of preparing students for jobs and the business of finding the perfect position is creating a cover letter that truly represents their skills and potential while also speaking to the needs of the position and employer. Use this workshop idea from Andrew Baker as it is, or modify it to suit the needs of your class. Jumpstart – Writing Effective Cover Letters
