Take Charge of Your Career
This is the first step in taking charge of your career. You can create a Career and Major Action Plan and assess your career readiness with the Are You Career Ready? Assessment. The first step in taking charge of your career is a resume and cover letter. The Career Services staff members are ready to assist with creating a resume or cover letter. If you already have a resume and cover letter, stop by for a review to make sure you highlight your skills.
Build Your Network
Start growing your network from the first day of class. Connect with your classmates, introduce yourself to your instructors, join an MCC club. Also, create a LinkedIn account to begin networking with professionals in your industry. Don’t know where to start? Need your LinkedIn account reviewed? Stop by and see a Career Services staff member.

Gain New Experiences
This is the second step in taking charge of your career. As you continue through your courses begin to seek out internships to apply your knowledge to the real world. Any MCC student pursuing a degree program should be actively seeking internships and gaining real world experience. The Career Services staff can assist with job and internship skills along with practicing interview skills. Create your InternNE account today and start applying for internships across Nebraska. Don’t wait until graduation to begin job searching. Create your NEworks account as soon as you enroll in MCC classes.
Build Your Network
Engage in your education through real world experiences. Interact with employers in your industry through job shadows, informational interviews, workshops and internships. Step away from your textbooks and allow yourself to connect with real employers in the areas you are interested in.
