Job Services for Employers
Job Fair Update
Anoka County Career Fair
Our next career fair will be in February 2019. Please watch for details this fall.
Employer of the Day
There will be no Employers of the Day scheduled on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
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 you might be targeting at Anoka Technical College
College Central is designed for employers to inform our students and alumni about current job openings within their organization by posting that information to College Central. This is a free service to our employers.
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, I would love to assist you.
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".
