Use HACC’s College Central Network (CCN) to identify opportunities!
Register with College Central Network -CCN. Employers are directed here to register internship opportunities! It is possible that employers will be in touch with your professors, so also let them know that you are interested in an opportunity. Do you have some connections of your own? If so, work with Career Services and your faculty to possibly turn the opportunity into college credit.
