Job Leads and Career Services

The industry of construction is sometimes unique when it comes to the job search. Our Career Services Department assists our students with locating good paying jobs throughout the United States as well as counseled on how to represent themselves to a potential employer. Through our Career Services Department the majority of our students get work in the field either while in school or shortly after graduation.

Our tried and true methods repeatedly prove that our system works. Graduates of HCA leave with the knowledge and ability to become some of the construction industry's most successful, innovative leaders, and upon graduation, HCA graduates are ready to meet the demands and requirements of the construction industry.

Early College Initiative
The New Hampshire Community College System has established an Early College initiative that will allow our high school students to take credit-bearing courses on their campus. These credits may be applied towards a degree at MCC or possibly transferred to another college or university. 

They have drastically reduced the cost of each course to $250 per course for this program, which is a quarter of the actual cost for regular tuition. If your student is interested in getting an affordable jump start on college, contact one of the counselors.
