Career Services for Employers

to gain access to qualified students and alumni


The Office of Career Services at Mercer County Community College...
  • Offers local area employers a number of free services to help with employment needs.
  • Gives employers access to a pool of qualified applicants.
  • Provides MCCC students who have up-to-date knowledge and skills in many areas (see Programs of Study (degree and certificate) for more details). Many students also have prior work experience.

Internet Job Postings

Post your jobs on the Internet through our service provided exclusively to Mercer students by the College Central Network (CCN).

Through this service, employers can list jobs by completing a simple registration form. These postings are available exclusively to MCCC students and alumni, who can also post their resumes. To use this service, you may register through the Career Services office at 609-570-3399 or directly on the Internet at College Central Network.

This method, yielding the widest audience and distribution, is best suited for career opportunity positions, especially if you are looking for recent graduates and alumni. Also, alumni are less likely to visit our office/campus and view the "hard copy" postings described in the second alternative.

Campus-Wide Job Postings

Through this method, you would create a one-page "flier" which can be e-mailed as an attachment to, faxed to us at 609-570-3880 or mailed to us at the West Windsor Campus at MCCC, PO Box 17202, Trenton, NJ 08690. Fliers will be posted at the West Windsor campuse. In selecting this method, we request that you follow these guidelines:

  • Please specify job title, name of your organization, job duties, skills required, location, hours, part-time or full-time, contact person, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address.
  • Your listing will attract more attention if you use large fonts, boldface, include color or artwork as well as list important information such as job duties, responsibilities, hourly wages and/or salary.
  • Since current students (rather than alumni) are most likely to see postings on campus, we suggest this method for part-time or seasonal employment.


Internship placements can link students in MCCC career and transfer programs (see degree and certificate Program listings) to career opportunities through practical, related work experience before they graduate; and internships, in some cases, can qualify for academic credit. (Internships for credit are granted by the applicable academic department, not Career Services.)

Company participation in these programs can help reduce recruiting and training costs as well as provide a continuous source of candidates. Please contact Career Services staff (609-570-3399 or for more information about these placements.

NOTE to "for profit" private sector employers who are not paying interns: The Fair Labor Standards Act has set criteria to determine whether an internship is truly a training program or just another form of employment and must be paid. Please see here.

Job Fairs

The college holds job fairs during the fall and spring semesters, each tied to one or more career program.

On-Campus Recruiting

Arrangements for on-campus recruiting -- requiring at least two weeks advance notice -- are made through the Career Services office. The college provides table and chair setup outside the Student Center cafeteria. Suggested hours are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
