Resources for Employers

Resources & services for employers through JCC

At Jamestown Community College, we support our area employers through a variety of initiatives.

Hire new employees & interns with Career Services

JCC uses Handshake to help connect employers with students and alumni. You can refer to this tutorial on setting up an employer account. With a Handshake account, you can:

  • Create a profile so job seekers can find and follow your company
  • Submit in-person and virtual events you are hosting and invite candidates to attend, such as info sessions about your company or career opportunities, open interviews or career fairs you may be hosting off-site, workplace tours, and more
  • Proactively recruit candidates by browsing profiles of candidates (who have chosen to make their profiles visible) and connect for a potential interview
  • Post job and internship opportunities (tutorial on how to post an opportunity)
  • Receive news from and register for career events coordinated by Career Services
  • Reach out to the Handshake support team or Handshake employer help center for assistance
    • Select I'm an employer, and fill out the space that pops up. This will create a help desk ticket, and Handshake support will get in touch with you.

Career Services can also help you:

  • Host a recruitment table or open interviews at a JCC campus
  • Attend a JCC campus career fair
  • Present your business and opportunities to a student organization or class 
  • Offer tours of your workplace to groups of students
