Working during college is a great way to start testing the waters of a professional environment and beef up your resume a bit. A part-time job may be unrelated to a specific major, but students will learn transferable skills desired by employers, including time management, communication, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving. Once again Career Services put together a “Part-Time Job Fair” where 24 companies including Access Health Care Services, Bank of America, Best Buy, and Microsoft recruited CW students.
“We want to make sure that we are the right fit for them, and they’re the right fit for us. We have a high level of retention and we want employees to stay with us,” said John Rota, Training Manager at The Container Store.
Access Healthcare Services was also recruiting with full-time and part-time positions available, looking for the right candidates at CW, “Someone who works in the medical field knows it’s tightly regulated, so individuals who want to work for us need a particular amount of experience or a certification in their field in order for us to hire them,” said Patrick Moroney, Sales Executive at Access Healthcare Services.
Colin Jackson from Bank of America said he enjoys recruiting at CW for very specific reasons, “I like coming to The College of Westchester to recruit because I find better candidates here. They are prepared and feel confident about themselves."
