About the CEEC Model (Visit the Ivy Tech Website)

The Office of Career Coaching and Employer Connections (CCEC) at Ivy Tech Central Indiana provides services and development to students, alumni, and employers. CCEC combines the efforts of career development and employer engagement to address the needs of both students and employers/workforce in our community. This new, strategic approach will emphasize career readiness practices alongside preparation throughout a student's college experience. Additionally, employers will be engaged to provide valuable input in the student’s experience, while still receiving targeted services to address their workforce needs.

Through CCEC, all Ivy Tech Central Indiana students will: 
  • Create a career development portfolio: students will create and showcase to employers a resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, work and learn experiences, and the professional network and connections they have built with support from their CCEC team.
  • Work with a career coach: focused, one-to-one relationship to help the student determine the right steps for their career path that match their values, interests, personality and skills.
  • Participate in work and learn opportunities: opportunity to build relationships with employers and gain direct experience in careers that interest the student, such as working alongside professionals in a tech company, or assisting on a Human Resources team in a healthcare organization.
