  • Employer Visits

    Several times a week during the Fall and Spring semesters, employers will host a table recruiting for open positions. These employer visits are advertised on the monitors in the hallways. The table is located outside Career and Employment Services in the cafeteria mall area (D1624). We encourage you to stop by and bring your resume.

  • Networking Etiquette Technology Conference

    The NET (Networking, Etiquette and Technology) event is a hands-on conference where a variety of professionals present employment-related topics to support career development among Madison College students.

    The 5th Annual NET Conference for students was held on Friday, Feb. 23, 2018. Look for this event to return spring of 2019!

    Students learned:

    • How to make a good first impression
    • How to succeed in their job search and in the workplace
    • Practical tips and tools through hands on interactive sessions

    There was also an opportunity to interact and practice skills learned with peers and local employers throughout the day.

    WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS HAD TO SAY...

    “I was blown away by the event. It exceeded my expectations. I liked that it was formal, yet inviting. I felt "spoiled" by all the amenities.

    “I left feeling empowered.”

    “A very educational and yet entertaining time.”

  • Part-Time Job Fair

    The 2017 Part-time Job Fair was held in late September. This annual event is an opportunity for students to network with local employers and apply for part-time positions. If you missed it, view the list of employers (PDF, 333KB).
