Student Jestin Blake found himself unemployed a little over a year ago. After searching for work in various places, he finally found a job in the halls of Salt Lake Community College.
“I stumbled upon The Student Employment Services and almost immediately found a job,” says Blake.
Career and Student Employment Services is designed to help students find a job. Whether it may be in their field or in something that they are interested in. The program provides several beneficial services for SLCC students.
The program offers students free workshops, resume reviews, and internships. A job list is updated weekly for students to view and apply.
“It was easy to find a job through the student employment Services,” said Blake.
Blake had attended a workshop sponsored by the Student Employment Services at the Taylorsville-Redwood Campus. He then proceeded to check the provided job listings, coming across a job that was available at the very same campus.
“After I found the jobs I was interested in, the advisors were able to set me up with interviews,” said Blake. “Shortly after which I had snagged the job.”
The job listings are frequently updated for students. The advisors then sit down with the student help prepare for an interview.
“I received a part-time position at the Redwood Campus Computer Workshop area,” says Blake. “…and I did it with the help from Student Employment Services.”
An appointment can be arranged with a Student Employment Services employee at the Taylorsville-Redwood, South City, Meadowbrook, and Jordan Campuses.
Career advisors sit down one-on-one with students and help them get the job that they are looking for. The advisor will also review the students resume and help them improve it.
