The Benefits of Hiring Post-Grads From L-Tri-C

You need to fill positions at your Lehigh Valley company, but you’re not sure where to look. Posting openings on job boards can cause you to be inundated with resumes — primarily from the wrong candidates.

You might not realize that your ideal candidate is likely a post-grad at Lehigh Carbon Community College. That’s right — the best person for the job is right under your nose. Find out why you should seek out candidates from our local community college.

Four Benefits of Hiring L-Tri-C Post-Grads

They’re Motivated

It’s not uncommon for employers to seek out recent college graduates. However, post-grads are a different group. These highly motivated students have already successfully completed a degree or diploma program and have enrolled at L-Tri-C to continue their education. Clearly, they’re very driven, so it’s safe to assume they would bring this level of enthusiasm to your company.

They’re Easy to Train

Hiring a seasoned candidate can be easier in a way, but you also have to break all the bad habits previous employers instilled in them. While some L-Tri-C post-grads have gone back to school after spending time in the workforce, others haven’t landed their first “real job” yet. Therefore, you’re able to teach them your way of doing things without wasting time explaining why you don’t want them to adhere to the same processes used at previous jobs.

They Want Flexible Opportunities

It can be hard to find candidates willing to take on temporary jobs or those that require non-traditional hours. However, post-grads tend to seek out opportunities like this because they’re busy with school. They might only want a job during a semester break or need a limited number of hours so that they can balance work with their course load.

They’re Local

Being short-staffed isn’t easy, so you need to fill open positions quickly. Since L-Tri-C students are already right here in the Lehigh Valley, they’re able to get to work immediately. You don’t have to wait for them to travel into town for an interview or for your selected candidate to pack up and move to the area. This will allow you to be running at full capacity — without having to pay existing employees overtime — in no time at all.
