The Student Employment Services and Co-Op Center provides comprehensive support to students and graduates seeking work by offering individual consultations and classroom presentations, information panels, resume assistance, mock interviewing, employer information and on-campus employer recruiting. Two career fairs are presented annually. Students anticipating graduation are offered comprehensive one-on-one assistance to prepare for their impending search for employment. The Delaware County Community College Online Job Board ( https://app.joinhandshake.com/login) provides access to all types of job openings for students and alumni. The College also offers Career Coach (www.dccc.edu/careercoach), an online tool designed to help students find a good career by providing the most current local data on wages, employment, job postings and associated education and training. The Student Employment Services and Co-Op Center will open and maintain a file of faculty references for any student who requests one to be forwarded to a prospective employer.

The Student Employment Services and Co-Op Center administers the Co-Op/Internship program which is designed to engage students directly in their area of study through paid or unpaid work/learning experiences which are done for credit. The Center also administers the Work Study program, a financial aid program that provides funding for students to work in part-time jobs located on campus or in the local community with non-profit organizations. Numerous positions are available on all Delaware County Community College campuses as well as in Delaware, Chester and Philadelphia Counties. Many of these jobs provide students with work experience in their field of study.
