  • Employment Practices

    Central Piedmont Community College and the employer partner agree to observe and employment practices which conform to:

      Career Services strives to reflect the following values in all activities it conducts. It is expected that employer partners will also embrace and comply with these values during all phases of their recruiting process:

      • Education: Career Services and employer partners/agencies encourage students to remain enrolled and in attendance of classes through completion of the student's educational goals.
      • Honesty and Openness: Career Services requires students and employer partners to provide accurate information about employment opportunities. Students and employer partners who intentionally provide dishonest or inaccurate information are no longer eligible to participate in the services provided.
      • Fairness: Career Services requires that employer partners utilize fair hiring practices and comply with equal employment opportunity (EEO) practices in all recruiting activities.
      • Respect: Career Services encourages students, as well as employer partners, to make informed and intelligent employment decisions without undue pressure. Once a decision is made about employment, all parties are encouraged to communicate the decision within a reasonable time frame.
      • Legality: Career Services expects that employer partners will comply with federal, state and local laws and regulations related to labor and employment.
      • Integrity: Career Services expects that employer partners will not seek favorable treatment or special favors as a result of gifts, contributed services, or financial support.
      • Accountability: Career Services collects information from employer partners about their recruitment activities in order to document how Career Services activities meet the needs of students and customers.
    • Advertising Internships and Cooperative Education

      Internships and co-ops are learning experiences that are meant to enhance a student’s program of study, further develop their career goals, and build professional experiences. For more information on internships and work-based learning please visit the Workplace Learning page. Consider the following before posting these kinds of opportunities:

      • Injury/accident during the internship or co-op: Central Piedmont strongly suggests that you consult your insurance carrier to determine if the existing policy would cover interns and co-op students, both paid and unpaid.
      • Define the time parameters and establishing a job description: this allows for both you and the student to have a clear understanding of expectations. For virtual internships/co-ops, you should determine how the work can be properly managed and communicate these guidelines appropriately.
      • Successful internships and co-ops have an assigned supervisor: this mentor oversees the student’s work. Students want feedback on their progress and after they complete tasks. A mentor provides guidance and can help eliminate a student’s frustration about unclear assignments or challenging tasks. Students are building upon skills learned in the classroom, and are not necessarily experts in their field.
    • Bulletin Boards

      Career Services maintains several physical bulletin boards on each Central Piedmont campus. These bulletin boards are used to advertise upcoming career events and job postings.

      • Business advertisements are not permitted on College bulletin board per the college posting policy.
      • Any flyers, posters, business cards, or other employer partner information must be approved by Central Piedmont Career Services before being posted on campus bulletin boards. To submit material to be posted, please email to career.fair@cpcc.edu.
      • All flyers, posters, business cards, or other employer partner material must contain the following information to be posted on campus bulletin boards: company name, address, contact phone number (fax number or email), and type of employment opportunity.
      • All flyers, posters, business cards, or other employer partner information will not be posted indefinitely.  Career Services reserves the right to manage these materials on our bulletin boards as we see fit.
    • Social Media

      Career Services maintains a presence on social media through LinkedIn. Our LinkedIn educates and engages Central Piedmont students, faculty, and leadership about many topics related to career development and job searching. We welcome employer partners to join us on LinkedIn.

      • Business advertisements are not permitted.
      • Central Piedmont's Career Services monitors social media outlets and reserves the right to edit or delete content deemed inappropriate.

    Other Recruitment Opportunities

    • Apprenticeships, Internships, and Work-based Learning (Workplace Learning)

      Contact Workplace Learning for information on how you can recruit Central Piedmont students for apprenticeship, internship, and work-based learning opportunities.

    • Part-Time Job Fests

      There are no events planned at this time.

      These medium-sized recruiting events are held at select campuses in our fall and spring semesters. This is a great way to recruit for multiple part-time workers. Connect with us on the student job board to receive updates about these and other hiring opportunities.

    • Work-It Wednesdays (Tabling)

      There are no events planned at this time.

      These are select Wednesdays throughout the school year where we host a limited number of employers for recruiting table visits. We provide a table in a high traffic area and promote your visit beforehand. This offers an excellent way for you to recruit for positions that do not require a specific skill set. Be sure to familiarize yourself with our recruitment policies listed on this page. Because of the different nature of each campus and the amount of student traffic, Work-It Wednesdays are only available on our three larger campuses: Cato, Central, and Levine.

      Recruiting table visits are pre-determined by Career Services and scheduled with each semester in mind. You can register for any available Work-It Wednesdays through the student job board. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate requests.
