Employers with available employment opportunities, please use the OCC online job portal – Pirate Job Lookout – to post jobs. Please review our posting instructions in the Post a Position section.

The Career Center will be looking to partner with local employers, alumni and community organizations to engage OCC students in a variety of ways. The goal of these partnerships is not to recruit for a specific position, but rather to provide educational opportunities to students about professionalism, career readiness, industry best practices, "day in the life" perspectives and much more. Opportunities may include guest speaking, panels, office hours and industry nights.
