2. CCO's New Location and Brand

The CCO is moving forward. Are you?

The Center for Career Opportunities office has moved and is now located in Young Hall, Room 132!

The CCO has also rebranded with a new look and name, myCCO.

This change was made after carefully considering input collected from student focus groups in an effort to keep the CCO brand consistent with the overall Purdue University brand similar to myMail, myMoney and myPurdue, but also to improve communication and engagement with students. While the name myCCO is new, we want to assure you that the services provided by myCCO will remain the same, if not better as we implement new features.
