Get Involved with CCI
The Career and Connection Institute at Gordon College bridges the liberal arts to the world of work in fresh and exciting ways. Guided by a single centering principle—the Hebrew word avodah, which encompasses work, worship and service—CCI focuses on four main areas: formation, intention, experiences and community. Its programming is available for everyone in the Gordon community to better discern their calling and develop professional and workplace skills. Here’s how you can get involved:

Generously funded by Gordon supporters, the Career and Connection Institute’s space on the second floor of Jenks Library features collaborative work areas, interview rooms, staff offices, innovative technology and a new entrance from the main quad. Tour the new space at CCI’s open house and dedication during Homecoming and Family Weekend, October 4–5.

Gordon uses the Handshake platform, an industry leader in college career services, as a one-stop-shop for job and internship posting. It’s an ideal place to connect with Gordon students and alumni, whose character and integrity make them exceptional employees.

  • Alumni, parents and friends: Join Handshake as an employer. Create an account for your organization and post opportunities (free of charge!) for interns, new graduate hires and mid-career hires.
  • Alumni: Join Handshake personally. Create an account for your own employment searches.

In addition to sharing job and internship opportunities through Handshake, there are lots of other ways to lend a hand to Gordon students and alumni looking for industry access and experience. 

  • Mentor a student or alum through CCI’s mentorship program.
  • Serve as a panelist (on-campus or remotely) during the annual Calling and Career Conferences or regularly scheduled industry panels and networking events. 
  • Host Gordon students for job treks or shadowing opportunities at your organization.

As the Institute gets off the ground during the 2018–19 academic year, we value the prayers of the Gordon community—specifically for 1) connections to internship hosts and employers, 2) valuable experiences for our students that help them understand what God is calling them to, and 3) lives of flourishing and thriving for members of our community.

Donations to the Institute help equip Gordon students for lives of flourishing in their work, worship and service. A gift of any amount undergirds and enhances CCI’s unique approach to personal and professional preparation. Give today ➔
