Employer Services

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

Here’s how we can help….



Career Connect by Jobspeaker is our 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 Employment Center Team hosts various virtual/in-person job fairs and recruitment events throughout the year to connect employers to our students and alumni.

Our recruitment events are:
  • Customized to meet your employment needs
  • Available in 2 formats (Option 1 & Option 2)
  • Marketed through Jobspeaker to our students and alumni, as well as through targeted sourcing and outreach throughout the community college system in our region
Option 1:
On-Campus Recruitments: Utilize a reserved table in a high traffic student area to share information about your opportunities directly with our students by completing a Table Request Form 2 weeks in advance to allow for proper marketing of the events to our students.
Option 2:

Online Recruitments: If you would like us to host a dedicated recruitment event for your company or organization, please complete the Live Virtual Recruitment Request Form and one of our team members will reach out to you to discuss the details. Recruitments need to be scheduled 2 weeks in advance to allow for proper marketing of the events to our students.

For further information, please contact the Employment Center via email at or phone at 661-362-3286.



  • Students and alumni throughout our region are actively using Jobspeaker to look for jobs and/or internships
  • A link to all new jobs is posted on our Employment Center Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages weekly
