Ivy Tech Community College South Bend – Elkhart has launched a new program.

The Career Coaching and Employer Connections (CCEC) program brings together career development and employer outreach, and creates a cohesive model for student-employer engagement.

For students, the program will provide the opportunity for:

Creation of a Career Development Portfolio: students will showcase why an employer should hire them and will include resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, work and learn experiences, and the professional network and connections they have built with support from their CCEC team.
Career Coaching: focused, one-to-one relationship to help the student figure out the right steps for their career path that match their values, interests, personality and skills.
Work and Learn: opportunity to build relationships with employers and gain direct experience in careers that interest the student, such as working alongside professionals in a tech company, or assisting on a Human Resources team in a healthcare organization.

The college plans to roll out the new model through a phased approach over four years. The first phase commenced last fall with six campuses in August.

To learn more, contact Kelly Friend, Executive Director of CCEC for the South Bend- Elkhart campus, at kfriend21@ivytech.edu.
