​Advertise Your Job Openings on DMACC's College Central Network

Employers can post opportunities for free on the DMACC Career Center's College Central Network website. Through your account on the site, you can post openings for our students and alumni to view. Some employers* may also be granted access to search the site’s resume database. To register, click on the link provided and follow the on-screen prompts to create an employer account.

*Employer users who are recruiting directly for their own organization may be granted access to the database of student and alumni resumes on our College Central Network website. While we welcome registrations and postings from third-party recruiters and private citizens on our College Central Network site, we do not grant resume database access to these types of users.

View DMACC's full policy on disseminating job and internship postings to students and alumni.
