Student to Student Recruiters
Programs underway at Coon Rapids, Spring Lake Park and Blaine High Schools.
The Foundation believes that upper level, work-ready students are an untapped market to fill the pipeline of future workers in Minnesota. And not only are they untapped, they are almost off the radar of prospective employers. Most students do not have resumes, LinkedIn profiles, or other mediums by which an employer would traditionally find candidates. Yet what students all have in common is each other. Students communicate with each other via social media faster than we even realize. We are leveraging this by creating a pilot program, whereby selected students are contracted to communicate open positions – internships, apprenticeships, part time, full time, etc. to their networks.
Our Student to Student Recruiter program involves DECA students and job openings from MetroNorth Chamber Members. Read this ABC Newspapers article to learn about our Coon Rapids program.
In partnership with the MN Chamber of Commerce.
