Mt. San Jacinto College Program Helps Connect Businesses with Qualified Student Workers
San Jacinto, CA – What if your business could have one or more employees, for up to 20 hours per week and up to six months with 75 percent of their wages subsidized? Mt. San Jacinto College CalWORKs Work Study program offers this amazing opportunity to community businesses by matching qualified students to the businesses. Participating businesses must hold current business tax identification, pay 100 percent of the mandated payroll taxes and other associated costs, and hold a permanent position available should the student be a fit for the company at the end of the student worker’s six months.
By teaming with community employers, the MSJC Job Connect/CalWORKs program provides employers with student candidates who can learn the initial necessary job skills needed to maintain long-term employment that focuses on career development. The program is designed to benefit both the employers and the students. Through the Work Study Program, MSJC has proudly helped fill positions for more than 100 employers in the Inland Empire for the last 18 years.
Interested businesses can set an appointment with MJSC’s Job Developer, Timmy Diaz, either by phone or email. Diaz will take detailed notes on your specific business needs, and then screen and work to find the best quailified potential students for employers. Once you choose a candidate from our selection, provided they are acceptable, the free contract can be completed. Additional assistance will be provided by the Job Developer/ CalWORKs program to help both the employers and the students succeed and grow with their new job. Assistance includes job coaching, supportive services and specialized counseling to help the individual balance the rigors of education and work.
This is a unique opportunity to build your business, while also supporting Mt. San Jacinto College students and your community.
