Frequently Asked Questions

I'm looking to recruit qualified candidates. Where can I post job openings?

We get the word out about your openings many ways: online, email, Twitter and with on-campus referrals.

To get started:

  • Register your organization or company on College Central Network. [LINK: https://www.collegecentral.com/KishwaukeeCollege/] 
  • Once approved, current students, alumni and community members will be able to see your job posting.
  • You can post as many job opportunities as you’d like at no cost to you.
  • We keep printed employment postings for students to view and bring them to other events on campus for more exposure.
Is there a job fair I can attend?

Yes! We host an annual Back-to-School Job Fair in September which is focused on students and features part-time, flexible, temporary employment and internship positions. Additionally, we offer industry specific hiring events throughout the year.

I want to host a recruitment event on campus. Is that possible?

Absolutely! We welcome employers to reserve a table in high traffic areas on campus. We generally reserve tables Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Contact 815-825-9472 to inquire.

I am looking for an intern or to start an internship with my company. Can you help?

Yes. Internships are a win-win. They are a great way to learn about a potential employee and are a great opportunity for our students to grow professionally.

There are many options. Internships can be for academic credit and paid or unpaid. All guidelines for educational experiences set by the Department of Labor must be followed.

If you’re looking for an intern, we will advertise the position and send it out to students in applicable majors who meet the requirements to participate in an internship. Give us a call at 815-825-9472 to discuss your needs

What other ways can I connect with students?
  • Participate on a career panel to discuss your industry and meet potential candidates.
  • Present as a guest speaker in the classroom to share your expertise.
