PVCC provides a number of services to help area employers recruit qualified staff from among PVCC's many talented students / alumni. If you have questions about any of the services summarized below, reach out to the resource contacts on the left side bar.
Job and Internship Postings
Use College Central Network, a FREE online recruiting service for employers to post job and internship opportunities. Students and community members have 24/7 access to your postings. Or visit College Central Network's Consortium of Virginia Community Colleges to reach ten colleges with a single posting. If you're interested in learning which community colleges might be best for you to recruit at considering the programs of study they offer, check out the Virginia Community College System program search. Visit HERE (with scrolling down to the College Locator) to find the community college in the geographic region of interest.
Another way to advertise at PVCC is through the job board, located in the Main Building near the Financial Aid Office. This space includes announcements about job fairs and regional recruiting events. You may also post on Facebook (using a colorful flyer will draw more attention).
Employers are welcome to recruit on-campus when classes are in session during the fall or spring semesters (usually Tuesdays or Thursdays between 10:30am-12:30pm or 12-2pm are best UNLESS recruiting healthcare students which varies by the program of study and their class schedule).
Host an intern! Employers benefit from a pool of skilled applicants, lower recruitment costs and a structured career development program. Through PVCC's Internship Program, students integrate classroom study with related work experience in business, industry, government, nonprofits or professional associations.
PVCC promotes internships to all students. If your organization can afford to host a paid internship, you will receive a larger response as students tend to need the financial support.
PVCC has partnered with Parker Dewey who pioneered the innovative concept of Micro-Internships - short-term, paid, project-based work experiences, many of which can be done remotely. Assignments typically require 5-40 hours of work which may be completed within a few days or weeks. Parker Dewey manages the payment processing to make it easy on employers administratively. Students are not considered your employees or contractors. It's quick and free to post positions either for PVCC students or Parker Dewey's network of students from hundreds of colleges. For more information, check out their sample projects or post an opportunity.
