The job fair is a great opportunity for employers in the heavy-duty equipment, trucking, agriculture and diesel technology industries to hire diesel technicians immediately.
The free job fair will be held from 9 a.m. to Noon on Wed., Sept. 20, in Bldg. 14 on the Ankeny Campus.
DMACC Diesel Technology program offers a six-semester program in which students earn an AAS degree, as well as a three-semester program in which students earn a diploma.
The DMACC Diesel Technology program will host its annual Fall Semester Job Fair from 9 a.m. to Noon on Wed., Sept. 20, in Bldg. 14 at the DMACC Ankeny Campus. More than two dozen employers will have representatives and booths at the event as they seek to fill both full and part-time positions. The job fair is FREE to attend and open to all.
“We generally have approximately 100 students with varying levels of experience and ability, ranging from very green first-year students with little shop experience who are ready to get their feet wet with a part-time position, to fairly seasoned second-year students with lots of home, shop and farm experience who are ready to graduate and get started with their careers," said Shea Parsons, DMACC Diesel Technology Program Chair and Instructor.
Parsons said the job fair is a great opportunity for employers in the heavy-duty equipment, trucking, agriculture and diesel technology industries to hire diesel technicians immediately.
The DMACC Diesel Technology program offers a two-year (six semesters) program in which students are in class roughly from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, learning in a hands-on environment preparing them for rewarding careers in the area of diesel repair.
“Instruction is in the repair, maintenance and testing of diesel engines, power trains and components of trucks, and heavy construction equipment," Parsons said.
DMACC also offers a three-semester Diesel Diploma option that consists of the first-year fundamentals.
Parsons said the goal of the job fair is to make connections between students and employers as easy for everyone involved as possible.
