Campus Visits and Presentations

CMC has three residential campus sites and eight commuter based sites. Build brand awareness of your organization by hosting an information table, offering in-class presentations, or information sessions, and participating in workshops in partnership with Career Services. This is one of the best ways to connect with CMC students and assist them in their career development, while also creating an opportunity to increase students' understanding of what your organization has to offer. Employers may contact individual campuses directly (excluding CMC Vail Valley at Edwards) to arrange for a suitable time for an information table in a high student traffic area.

Career Fairs and Events

Due to changes in our system, we usually try to host various events throughout the year to support career exploration for students and job seeking. In many cases, the College partners intentionally with our local CO Workforce Centers when they have any job-related events. We are working to get back to the two or three times per year small-scale career or continuing education fairs at one or more campuses. However we are also looking into virtual career fairs as well. Keep checking back to see what we are doing to help support you, our employers, in their search for great new team members.

All planned events are posted on the Career Services Calendar of Events. Registration for these events occurs in Handshake, our career platform. Any employer who wishes to receive notices of future events should sign up for an account — details above!
