Notice: The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and its impact on our students, faculty and staff is unprecedented and changing rapidly. The health and well-being of our CC family is, and has always been our #1 priority.

Given the increased threat that COVID-19 poses to our global community, and out of an abundance of caution, Columbia College has made the decision to conduct all classes online for the remainder of the semester.

The Career Services staff will be working remotely to continue to provide service and resources to our students. We can be reached by email at or  by phone (573) 875-7425. We will be checking email and voicemail each day but a response to your email or voicemail may be delayed. We will respond as soon as we can. You can schedule an appointment via Aviso, Zoom or Skype as well.

Log into Handshake and you can find a number of resources including resume templates, articles, and virtual events.
