ISTC re-entry director Rick Vest said the college selected the Career Central Network platform because it offered the most extensive range of students for services.

Students can post resume’s and portfolios on the site and get feedback on content from the college’s job placement team. “We can help them present their skills in a way that resonates with employers,” said Vest, “and accurately conveys what they have to offer.”

Vest particularly appreciates the targeted job postings feature. “Our graduates face some unique barriers to employment,” said Vest. “It is important to us that every job posted will be appropriate for one of our graduates.” ISTC serves incarcerated students exclusively, providing career technical training in 18 career fields.

Employers and students can access the new College Central Network from the ISTC website at https://istc.edu/student-services/#Job-Placement-Assistance.
