Employer Services

Are you interested in recruiting College of the Canyons students and alumni for your open positions and internships? The Career Center would love to assist you in getting connected!

Here’s how we can help….



Career Connect by Jobspeaker is our new online database for employers to post employment and internship opportunities for COC students and alumni. Setting up an employer account allows you to connect to community college students and alumni throughout San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and northern L.A. counties. Once you are registered, you will be automatically added to our employer invitation list to participate in upcoming job fairs and events.  



The Career Center Team hosts various virtual job fairs throughout the year and is available to host customized employer recruitments online upon request. Our Fall 2020 Virtual Job Fair will be held on October 27, 28 and 29, 2020
