Employer of the Day
Since last year, our Employer of the Day program has grown. We have more employers setting up tables to meet with our students whom are setting up interviews and completing applications on the spot. There have been many students hired because of this program.
Employers can schedule a time to recruit Anoka Technical College students on campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays between 9 am to 3 pm. A table will be provided near the cafeteria (or designated space) to allow employers to interact with our students.
Two weeks advance notice is preferred but accommodations can be made.
Sign up to host a table at Anoka Tech, and include in your request:
- preferred date and time
- a brief description of the job(s)
- what career programs offered by the college would be interested in this posting
Employers can inform Anoka Tech students and alumni about current openings within their organization by posting that information to College Central. All jobs postings go through a screening/approval process before being available for viewing by students.
Questions about College Central? Email or call Mary Allenson 763-576-4094.
All job postings are listed in College Central. Students need to be registered before attempting to utilize any tools in College Central. To search for student worker jobs, type in Company Name "SW-ATC".
Classroom presentations and workshop
Faculty may request a class or club visit. The Job Placement Coordinator will create a presentation focused towards the interest of the group.
Job Openings will be forwarded to Program Directors
Job leads appropriate to individual programs will be provided to instructors to disseminate to students and alumni. Please engage your students to register at College Central to see the many jobs that I post daily.
