News release by Emily Schneider, student Intern at the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce.
The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce and Stephen F. Austin State University Center for Career and Professional Development will co-host "Effective Techniques for On-Campus Recruiting" at the Chamber, 2516 North St. from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19. The workshop will introduce attendees to the new Jobs4Jacks system as well as provide opportunities to learn effective on-campus recruitment techniques.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or a tablet for hands-on training.
“We are going to show employers how to post positions, how to search for students within the system, how to get registered for career expos or if they want to host information sessions or conduct interviews on campus,” said Jamie Bouldin, director of the Center for Career and Professional Development at SFA.
The Jobs4Jacks system has undergone a major transformation and is now hosted by Handshake, SFA’s newest vendor for the online resource.
"The website layout is now easier to navigate and is mobile friendly and can be accessed on a smartphone or tablet," said Bouldin. “That’s one of the benefits for employers so they can go in and post jobs or request interview schedules while they are traveling."
Jobs4Jacks is beneficial for both students and employers.
“The nice thing about Jobs4Jacks is that it puts the opportunities out there for all students. Any student can look at any job,” said Bouldin. “It gives a broader base of student candidates who may not have been aware of a company. Now is a really good time for businesses to get into the Jobs4Jacks system, because so many students and alumni are searching, and it’s a lot easier to use.”
There is no charge to attend the workshop, but registration is requested by July 15. If interested, contact the Nacogdoches County Chamber at (936) 560-5533 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
