Valet Park of America is a great job for college students! We offer flexible hours and a willingness to work students’ job schedules around their class schedules. September is a busy time for us as many of our current employees who begin classes relinquish some of their work hours, while students coming into the area begin to search for employment opportunities while attending schools in our area. With these transitions happening, our HR team is especially busy. One of the ways we try to fill in the gaps left by employees who enroll in classes is by attending Fall Job Fairs. Many College Career Centers host job fairs where local employers can set up an information booth and interact with potential candidates. VPA will be traveling to several New England area colleges and Universities in the upcoming months in an effort to recruit students – and any other interested persons – to work as valet attendants at many of our busy locations.
We have already had the pleasure of attending one such event on August 28th, at the Western New England University of Springfield, Mass – right near our corporate headquarters! Several of our current employees attend WNEU and we had the opportunity to meet some of their friends at the college, who expressed interest in working with their friends at a job they enjoyed. Members of our Human Resources team, HR Manager Mark Macero and HR Generalist Kelly Broderick, set up an info booth in the Rivers Memorial building on campus and handed out business cards, company newsletters, and online application cards, as well as VPA pens and Frisbees!
It was a great opportunity to interact with motivated individuals who are looking to make a little extra money while attending school by working flexible hours in a fast-paced, teamwork-oriented environment. VPA would like to thank the staff at WNEU Career Services for allowing us to participate in the Job Fair, as well as the students for expressing interest in becoming an addition to our growing team!
Be on the lookout for a VPA table at your University’s next job fair!
