Welcome to Berry's online job posting and resume database system, College Central Network!
Once registered, you can search for jobs at any time from any computer. If you want employers to consider you when they are searching for candidates, you must upload a resume.
Review the Resume Authorizations carefully and select the option that is appropriate for you. You may change your authorization at any time.
Contact the Berry Career Center (706 236-2292) if you have questions.
Go to the website.
Resumes uploaded to CCN must be perfect and "employer-ready" as our top employers are given access to search resumes. When you are ready to upload your resume be sure it is ready! We strongly encourage you to follow the resume format outlined in our Career Center guideline on our website.

The Berry College Career Center serves only as a clearinghouse of information regarding job and internship opportunities. The listing of positions on this site should not be interpreted as an endorsement. Students and alumni should personally research companies and openings prior to entering into any contractual agreements. Accordingly, Berry College and College Central Network expressly disclaim any liability in connection with any potential or actual employment or internships which result from any applicant's response to any posting on this site.
Identifying Fraudulent Job Postings
The following list is not exhaustive or comprehensive. Its purpose is to help you identify fraudulent postings and scams and to safely search online.
Red Flags when searching for a job:
• You are asked for personal information regarding your bank account, social security number, PayPal account number, etc.
• You are offered a large reward for allowing someone access to your bank account
• You are asked to wire of transfer money using any method
• You receive a large check unexpectedly
• You are asked to send a copy of your photo ID or are asked to complete a background check before you can be considered for a position
• The posting does not include a job description, it only references the amount of money you will make
• The offer sounds too good to be true – like being paid to shop online, be a virtual assistant, or work from home.
• If the job requires an up-front cost or financial investment
• If multiple things are misspelled in the job posting
• If a URL reroutes to a webpage that is not the company’s legitimate website
• The email domain is a non-business email domain such as @live.com
• The URL in the posting takes you to a link that is not active, does not exist, or reroutes you to a website that is not affiliated with the company
• A high salary is offered for a job that requires little to no experience
• If you are a student and the listing states that you will have access to the top level of management (ex. CEO, CFO, etc.)
• The job is for a start-up company
• The employer responds immediately after sending your information/resume. Resumes are typically viewed by more than one individual, so it should take some time. (auto responses not included)
• The employer asks you to help start up a new location because they do not have an office near you.
Google the phone number, fax number, or address to make sure it is legitimately connected to the company (use Google Maps Street View – if the address shows an empty field or a residence, the posting is NOT legitimate).
Visit a company’s website if anything looks suspicious. Confirm the domain that all official emails from the company should come from. Also, call and confirm that the person you are speaking with actually works with the company.
Check a company’s legitimacy through the Better Business Bureau (http://www.bbb.org/us/consumers/) or through local chambers of commerce (http://www.uschamber.com/chambers/directory)
Google the company’s name with the word “scam.” Some of the articles that come up will not be legitimate, but know that some search results may help you avoid a potential scam.
Do not agree to have your paycheck or other funds directly deposited into your account before you begin work. Legitimate employers will ask you for this information on site during your first week at work.
Legitimate employers never ask for your Social Security Number over phone or email.
The company’s website should have information about the services they actually provide. If a website provides only information about the job you are interested in applying for, it could be a scam.
Please let us know if you need help to navigate the various functions of CCN!
