A question commonly asked through schools, is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some might already have a plan of action and what the future has in store for them, others may have no idea what they want to do. This is where the Pierce College Puyallup Job and Career Connections resource center comes in.

“We support individuals with a variety of services and resources along their career pathway,” says Diana Baker, the manager for Worker Retraining and Job and Career Connections.

Job and Career Connections is a resource to community members, alumni, staff and students providing a wide array of opportunities.

According to Baker, they not only provide full-time, part-time and internships but, they also have volunteer opportunities and temporary/seasonal jobs. In addition, they provide hourly jobs and work-study opportunities that are specific to students.

More of these job opportunities can be found through an online board at which is available to students and community members alike. If you are a new member, you must register an account to access the system.

Likewise, job opportunities can be found on a job board located in the student success center in the Pierce Puyallup administration building; where the main connections center is held with faculty to assist students. Also, there will be an Employment and Education Fair on both Pierce campuses spring quarter 2020.

The Job and Career Connections can also do a lot more than just help find a new career.

“[We provide] career occupation outlook and in-demand data, job search assistance, resume and cover letter review, mock interviews, hiring events and more,” says Baker.

Not only that but they can also do direct referrals to campus and community resources.

Job and Career Connections is an outstanding resource for students and community members alike. They are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, except on Fridays where they close at 3 p.m. They also have walk-ins 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. during the work week as well.
