CareerConnect Platform Powered by Purple Briefcase

We are very excited to announce that on July 1, 2019, we are transitioning to a new and improved career management platform called CMC CareerConnect, with our vendor Purple Briefcase, as the main avenue for sharing job and internship opportunities with students and alumni at CMC.  If you already have an account with Purple Briefcase, you can request to join our community there. If you have not used this system before for hiring, follow the instructions below:

You can create your FREE account by visiting our CAREER CONNECT home page, and then clicking the New Employer button.

After you’ve created your account, you’ll be directed to the My Schools page. From here, you can:

  • Set up your employer profile (including logo!) to attract more interest
  • Add job opportunities
  • See your pending school connection request(s)
  • Connect with additional schools

Once we’ve approved your connection, you’ll receive a notification email to the address that you used to create your account. When you post jobs and internships, please be sure to set the status of the job or internship to ‘Submit’ and then click ‘Save’ at the bottom of the page when you are finished.

We’re excited about CareerConnect, and we can’t wait to have you join our community. Purple Briefcase will allow you to connect with us in a more robust and meaningful way than ever before, so please create your account and request a connection to Colorado Mountain College today.

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 to arrange for a suitable time for an information table in a high student traffic area.

Career Fairs and Events

CMC hosts 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 their fall or spring fairs. Two or three times per year CMC will hold small-scale career or continuing education fairs at one or more campuses.

All planned events are posted on the Career Services Calendar of Events. Should you wish to inquire about participation in currently scheduled or future events, please contact

Posting Jobs and Internships

We welcome direct postings from employers on our student job board, Employers may post job and internship listings for free. Ads will be subject to approval before publishing and expire in 60 days. These listings also appear on the homepage of Basecamp, our online student portal, and in various places on our college website.

Just click on “Submit a Job” in the upper right corner. If it is your first time to the site, you need to set up a simple profile/account, but then can post very easily thereafter.
