Ivy Tech Community College Evansville announced Tuesday a new division aimed at helping prepare students and meeting employer workforce needs.

The new division, "Career Coaching and Employer Connections," (CECC) will emphasize comprehensive career readiness practices alongside academic preparation throughout a student's college experience, according to Ivy Tech.

“We want to be where students of all ages can launch their career, as well as be the number one resource for employers to seek top talent,” said Ivy Tech Evansville Chancellor Daniela Vidal. “We provide custom training to meet the demands of companies looking to skill-up current employees so people can thrive in their career. We look forward to CCEC expanding those opportunities.”

Through CCEC, all Ivy Tech Evansville Students will have a variety of opportunities, including:

  • Creating a career development portfolio
  • Working with a career coach
  • Participating in work and learn opportunities

“As the Community College for Southwest Indiana, we are aligning more staff, programs, and resources to the needs of our local workforce," CCEC Executive Director Vic Chamness explained.

Ivy Tech has received support to establish this program from several organizations and partnered with Ascend Indiana to study what gaps there were that could be improved upon.
