Career Development

An online Career Assessment is another resource that is available to anyone. The career assessment will ask a series of questions and then match you to occupations, allow you to explore careers, and give you a list of CVTC programs that are a good fit for your interests.

Career Services offers assistance to students and graduates that need help looking for a job, writing a cover letter, building a resume, and interviewing. Several career fairs are hosted each year to help students meet and network with local employers.

Services are free and available to all current students. Your Student Success Specialist will assist you in overcoming barriers that many students encounter during their academic career. If we determine that students need more resources we will provide them with a referral to appropriate community resource(s), including mental health counseling. We are here to help with:

Non-Traditional Occupations

CVTC receives federal grant support for Non-traditional Occupation (NTO) students through the federal Carl D. Perkins Career & Education Act. Non-traditional occupations (NTO) designated programs represent careers in which less than 25% of the workforce is made up of one gender. Today, many women and men are breaking down barriers to pursue successful careers in NTO fields.

Diversity Resources staff can offer support, advocacy, and resources while you are exploring a non-traditional program at CVTC. With questions, email us.

Student Life

Pie Toss Benefits CVTC Math Club

The CVTC Math Club held the 1st Annual Pi(e) Day Celebration in March. It was a messy, Pi(e)-induced frenzy as students and staff had a chance to toss a pie at their favorite CVTC instructor or staff member, or buy a slice of pie to enjoy. All proceeds went to the Math Club. The celebration was a sweet success and the planning is underway for the 2015 Pi(e) Day Celebration.

Campus Dining

CVTC does not offer a meal plan, but dining services are provided at the Eau Claire Clairemont Campus in the Valley Café. From subs, soups and burgers to cookies and coffee, the cafeteria features a wide variety of delicious food and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Valley Kiosk, located at the Health Education Center provides on-the-go snacks such as soup and sandwiches and is open for breakfast and lunch.

Clubs & Activities

CVTC has a vibrant student life with over 50 student clubs, the Student Government Association (SGA), and several campus events throughout the year. Nearly every program has a club to compliment it as well as general clubs to help you get involved. CVTC’s Student Life office will help you make the most of your college experience. Once you are a student, you can also look forward to receiving the monthly newsletter, E-Notes.
