Hiring College Students
When you are ready, here are steps to recuit on campus:
Step 1: Register as an employer on the Las Positas College Internship and Job Board
Step 2: Once approved as an emplyer (1-2 business days) you can post job openings and/or internship oportunities.
Step 3: Find out about and register for upcoming Career Center hiring events
When hiring a student, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Students are students first
When you have a student on your staff, please be flexible in their hours so that they can attend classes and get their work done. Their priority should be to complete their degree or certificate. The College offers classes at night, during the day and online. It’s important that they be able to take advantage of these opportunities.
- Students may not have a lot of work experience
Even for entry level positions, companies often seek candidates with experience. This can leave students in a Catch-22 – having no experience to land the job but needing a job to get experience. Students are eager to learn and are highly motivated. Be willing to train them and foster their potential.
- Students want meaningful work
Students, today, want to be sure that what they do matters, both in gaining valuable experience and in making a difference in their community. They want to know about the company’s values, about work-life balance, and how you give back to others.
