Frequently Asked Questions

For Students

What are Resume Blitz days and Wednesday Walk-Ins?
On these days, CSO staff members take 15-minute walk-in appointments to meet with students. On Resume Blitz days, stop by from 10:00am-noon or 2:00-4:00pm to have your resume quickly reviewed by one of the CSO staff members. For a Wednesday Walk-In, drop in from 2:00-4:00pm for a first-come, first-served appointment!

What is an On-Campus Recruiting Program?
The CSO hosts employers who choose to interview students right here in our office for various job and internship opportunities. Upcoming on-campus interview schedules can be viewed and applied to through JobGrove.

Where do the on-campus interviews take place?
On-campus interviews take place in the CSO in one of our four interview rooms. If you have a telephone interview with an organization, you can also use one of these interview rooms if available; please contact Linda Reash (x3371) to check on availability of the room.

Where do I find internship and/or job postings?
Visit JobGrove to view all posted job and internship opportunities as well as on-campus interview schedules.

When applying for a job or internship, why does JobGrove say that I do not qualify?
Employers are able to specify qualifiers in their posting information. If you receive the message that you do not qualify for a position, then there is likely something in your profile (major, classification, QPA, etc.) that does not agree with the requirements.

When should I start applying for jobs or internships?
Job and internship opportunities are posted throughout the year. We encourage you to begin applying early in the academic year for these positions.

If I'm planning to attend graduate school, should I still utilize the CSO?
Yes, the CSO has many resources available not just for job and internship seekers, but also those pursuing grad school. Stop by our office to pick up the latest edition of Graduate School Guide, a comprehensive guide to doctoral, master's and professional degree programs. Check out the Graduate School section in "Advice & Preparation" on our website for further resources and information on graduate school.

What if I can't make my scheduled appointment with the career counselor?

Please contact our office (724-458-3371) in advance if you are unable to make it to your appointment.

When is the CSO open during the school year?
Our office is open Monday through Friday 8:00am-noon and 1:00-5:00pm.

When should I begin visiting the CSO?
It's never too early to visit the CSO! We work with all students, no matter what major and year!

What is the difference between Career Services and Education Career Services?
Education Career Services (ECS) functions as a satellite office of the CSO. Mrs. Deborah Snyder serves as the Associate Director of ECS and is excited to meet with Education majors, as well as those students considering Education as a major. ECS is located in the HAL 100- the Education Suite. Education majors are also welcome to visit the CSO for access to additional resources.

What can I do to prepare for an appointment?
It is helpful to consider in advance what you would like to accomplish during the appointment taking into considering the time allotted. For resume review appointments, come prepared with 2 copies of your resume (one for you to take notes and one for the career counselor). You may just want to set up an initial appointment to get yourself situated and determine what a good course of action might be for the academic year.

Where do I go for assistance regarding obtaining credit for an internship?
While the CSO can be of assistance regarding the internship search, if you would like to receive academic credit for an internship, you will need to speak with your academic department’s Internship Coordinator. Visit the Internships website for more information.

How can I obtain a copy of my transcript?
A copy of your unofficial transcript can be obtained through myGCC. To request an official transcript, this is done through the Registrar's Office. Visit the following link for more details: www.gcc.edu/Request_A_Transcript.php.
