Scottsdale Community College is partnering with Pipeline AZ, an Arizona career development and job platform, to provide students with a comprehensive resource that connects academic progress with work-based learning and a career network.
This integrated solution is from the Maricopa Pipeline uniting all 10 Maricopa Community Colleges, including SCC, in its mission to grow the regional economy and community by introducing opportunities to connect platform participants to in-demand careers, a press release stated.
Maricopa Pipeline uses Pipeline AZ’s white-labeled platform and services to act as a career exploration and talent development infrastructure for all students and alumni.
“SCC provides its students with many opportunities to up-skill and re-skill as they navigate their career paths,” SCC President Eric Leshinskie said in the release. “The Maricopa Pipeline allows SCC students to see actionable ways they can discover fields of interest and training opportunities that can support them no matter where they are in their career journeys.”
The platform gives students and job seekers advanced insights about the exact skills and education they need to reach their career goals. Upon completion of their profile, users will then have access to a variety of career exploration opportunities and information on work-based learning experiences including job shadowing, internships, service learning, field experience, research, apprenticeship, further education and other opportunities specific to Maricopa County, according to the release.
“Pipeline AZ’s partnership with SCC is an intentional workforce solution that engages with students in a way that is tailored to their interests and circumstances,” said Katherine Pappas, senior vice president of Pipeline AZ. “As students graduate and enter the workforce or as job seekers look to make their next career move and go back to school, they can employ these tools to find a professional development pathway in any industry.”
The Maricopa Pipeline empowers SCC students and Scottsdale job seekers with a collection of resources to explore high-demand careers that align with their passions, skills and Maricopa County’s industry demands.
SCC students, alumni and job seekers of any age and experience can set up a profile, explore career paths, look at education opportunities and connect with employers at https://mcccd.pipelineaz.com/.
