RCC Student Employment Opportunities

"Working at RCC as a project manager has played an important role in preparing me for my future career.  Coming to work daily and performing tasks such as communicating with customers, setting deadlines for project requests and constructing proposals for future projects has given me  a better understanding of how a career in IT could pan out.  Not only will these new skills be hlepful in finding a post-grad career, but having strong communication skills is a great trait to have  as a person.  I look forward to applying the techniques I have learned at RCC to my next profession when the time comes."-Kellie, IT '15

"Having competed against 120 other applicants last fall for one of ten positions, I was offered an incredible position after graduation. While my interviewers were impressed with my business knowledge, it was my IT experience gained at RCC that provided me with the competitive edge I needed to win my ideal job." -Brie '13
