Tips for Recruiting RRCC Students and Graduates

  • Set appropriate requirements. Make sure your desired qualifications, such as education, are appropriate for community college students (ie. positions that do not require a Bachelor's Degree). Many students won't apply if they feel they do not meet all the desired qualifications of a position.
  • Offer a competitive salary. Consider additional perks and benefits, like tuition reimbursement.
  • "Walk the Talk" regarding anti-discimination policies, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives.
  • Offer flexibility. Keep in mind that many of our students have competing priorities: school, family, hobbies, etc. 
  • Put the individual first. There is no "average" RRCC student! We have a diverse student body, from recent high school grads to career transitioners.
