What IS Jobs Connected?

It’s a new tool to make our in-person job fairs more effective!

Jobs Connected (PDF, Get Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader - Link opens in new window) is a Technology Company that Montgomery College Office of Student Employment Services has partnered with to help us make our In-Person Job Fairs more effective by giving YOU, the job seeker, an easy way to learn about the employers that will be at the event on one website BEFORE each job fair and a way to reach out to them and for them to reach out to you AFTER the fair.
Students, we ask that you ALWAYS use Dual Factor Identification when setting up your Jobs Connected Account.  See directions here (PDF, Get Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader - Link opens in new window) .
Advantages of Jobs Connected for Jobseekers
  • Before/during/After the actual in-person event, you can visit the website and, in each employer’s information booth you will find:
    • An “About” page where you can read a basic description of the employer, watch videos they have embedded, access a link to their website, learn about the size of the organization and the benefits they offer, and perhaps find direct contact information. No more walking up to a table and asking, “what does your company do?” – you’ll already know!
    • An “Open Positions” page with links to and descriptions of what they are hiring for.
    • A “Handouts” page for full job descriptions, brochures, and other documents.
    • A “Q&A” page where you can ask questions anonymously about their jobs and requirements and the employer culture.
    • A “Resume Dropbox” where you can upload your resume for the employer to see and perhaps even contact you before the actual event. You also won’t “run out of resumes” on the day of the event because you can upload a virtual one to their resume drop box.
  • You can easily “do your research” about employers BEFORE the actual event, so you can plan you actions and strategize to visit the employers you are MOST interested in efficiently at the event.
  • When you visit a table at the event, there will be a QR code on the employer’s table sign – if you scan that with your phone, the employer will be able to see your name and email address so they can follow up with jobseekers that visited the booth after the fair.  No more lost business card/lost resume dead-ends.

Advantages of Jobs Connected for Employers

  • A more-prepared pool of applicants before, during, and after the event.  Since jobseekers can see your information and actually send you a resume through the website – it makes the day of the event more about interacting with individuals rather than handling a crowd.
  • No more running out of handouts – jobseekers can see them right on the website.
  • No more lost or unreadable email information for candidates – it’s collected for you right on the Jobs Connected website. Jobseekers at the event scan the QR code on your table to allow you to collect their name and email.
  • You can receive resumes even before and after the event!
