End of Summer Opportunities

back to schoolGet a jump on fall.  Here are ideas to think about NOW.

1.  Fall semester schedules and registration:  Gather information and make it widely available so clients can pursue good quality learning opportunities.  Community college sign-ups and orientation are coming up soon.  Consider sending employers the information.  All of their employees will benefit and they may be more flexible about granting time off to your clients.

2.  Turnover  in Student-related jobs:  There will be turnover in jobs filled by students as their schedules change for a  new semester.  Campus housing, maintenance and food service jobs will be widely available.  Watch for school district hiring fairs for kitchen and lunchroom monitor jobs.  Great for moms who need parttime work around children’s schedules.

3.  Start of busy season for hotels:  Business travel.  Cooler weather.  Dread of the coming holiday slowdown.  Hotels are gearing up for full occupancy now.  Get in touch with your hotel partners.  Approach a couple of new ones.  Consider organizing a special job readiness session focused on preparing for success in back of the house jobs.

4.  Special events staffing:  State fairs.  Fall concerts.  Football games.  All kinds of special events recruit staff to set-up, serve, and clean up.  These opportunities are great for extra income or to build US work experience.  Aramark and Sodexo are national contractors.  A quick google search or phone call should help you identify local contractors.
