North Central Michigan College is pleased to announce that in collaboration with LTBB of Odawa’s Nitaazhitoojik Industrial Training program, the NCMC Career Development Center has joined College Central Network (CCN) to connect employers to North Central students and alumni!

CCN is a modern platform that provides cutting-edge technology to best connect employers with qualified candidates, quickly and intuitively. The Network app alone features opportunities for part-time jobs, internships, and full-time employment, making the job search experience easier for students.

“College Central’s app connects students to exclusive jobs in the region and state. It also connects students to national jobs and internships via JobsCentral® and InternCentral®,” said Doug Tippett, career development specialist. “For students, the process is simple: they register for free at After completing their profile, each receives a Welcome to College Central Network confirmation and can immediately install and use the College Central app. All registered students can then interact with career services, as well as search for and apply to jobs!”

NCMC invites employers to register at and post job opportunities for FREE to our students as part of this new partnership. College Central Network is free, and employers can populate the app with job postings and other content.

The College Central app also provides students the quickest way to sign up for career fairs, workshops, and résumé reviews, and to schedule appointments with Career Service staff. Users can explore and find amazing job and internship opportunities geared toward North Central students. The Network also pushes out customized, relevant content for the college itself. Plus, all students have access to Job Agent, which automatically matches jobs to an individual student's profile.

With CCN, North Central Michigan College students and alumni can apply for part- or full-time jobs and internships; schedule appointments with an NCMC career advisor; sign up for workshops, job fairs, and events, including those that feature employers visiting NCMC for on-campus interviewing and information sessions; and access extensive job search and career advice resources. For example, highly ranked College Central Podcasts feature over 120 short but concise 6-minute dives into specific career topics and are perfect to listen to between classes or while commuting.

To date, over 6 million jobs have been posted on College Central Network, and over one million employers have registered and actively recruit students through the Network! Over 35,000 Michigan-based employers are registered with CCN.

According to Tippett, “Membership in the Consortium is provided at no additional cost to both NCMC and all community colleges in Michigan that use CCN’s Career Services Central® career office management platform to exclusively manage the members’ individual career centers. “By selecting Career Services Central to power our Career Center, we not only have a platform to manage our own career development, we’re also joining nine other Michigan community colleges already using Career Services Central. Collectively, we’re actively working to grow and retain Michigan’s emerging workforce by providing unprecedented access to our State’s employers and jobs!”
