JobX might sound top secret, but any Pensacola State College student or alumnus has clearance to log onto the new Pensacola State College JobX site and connect with employers looking to hire.
Newly initiated, the PSC JobX website offers students/alumni a chance to find local and regional jobs. Recently, PSC officials reached out to 1,200 area employers to register and use the site to find qualified PSC students/alumni to fill positions.
Already, 18 employers have registered and posted job openings on PSC JobX, and that number is expected to grow considerably, said Jo McArthur, PSC Business & Industry Outreach Coordinator.
“It’s a free job board where outside employers can post their positions,” McArthur said. “These employers want to hire our students and so many of our students need to work. We think it’s a great tool to help our students.”
Employer listings include information on the company hiring, wages, hours, job location, number of openings, and, in most cases, an actual link to a job application.
Wages for the jobs currently listed range from $8.46 an hour (Domino’s Pizza) to $21.64 (Landrum HR Computer Programmer). Other employers who have posted jobs on the site include Mediacom Communications Corporation, Capital Insurance Agency, Firehouse Subs, and Mist Works.
While students can seek out and apply for jobs on the site, they can’t post that they are seeking out jobs – they can only respond to employers’ listings.
JobX is used on many college and university campuses and is a product of NextGen Web Solutions.
Students/alumni and employers can access the site and register at https://psc.studentemployment.ngwebsolutions.com
