UPS recruiter on campus Friday

A UPS recruiter will be coming to campus to find more people who love logistics.

Recruiter Janelle Rodgers will be here to talk to students face-to-face about opportunities at UPS from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 27.

Debra Vaughn, director of Student Employment and Career Services, said students interested in working for UPS should look for the recruiter in the main lobby area on the corner of the coffee shop.

“This will be a good time for students to learn about UPS and hand out resumes,” Vaughn said.

She suggested that students have professional resumes ready and do some preparation such as researching UPS jobs before meeting with Rodgers in order to have the best chance at getting a position. The company is looking for both full-time and part-time workers.

Rodgers will present the benefits of working for UPS. OCCC students will have the opportunity to learn what is required to get a job in different positions at the company.

UPS has participated in OCCC job fairs along with setting up these employer tables. The regulations governing free employer tables at OCCC mean that students will have to approach the recruiter, Vaughn said. The recruiter will be able to talk with students but cannot leave the table to get their attention.

UPS has reported hiring about 50 OCCC students since July 1.

Along with hiring students to work at UPS, the company also offers tuition waivers to student-workers.

The UPS recruiter coming to campus is one of many events hosted by the Career and Employment Services department at OCCC to assist students in getting a job. So far this semester OCCC has had 42 employers set up a table for their company and talk to students.

Fliers announcing employers coming to campus can be found on the bulletin boards by the Career and Employment Services offices on the first floor of the Main Building.

Vaughn and her staff also are available to help prepare resumes and answer questions.
