Kohler hoping to fill jobs with PRCC students

POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from PRCC

POPLARVILLE - Recruiters from Kohler Engines in Hattiesburg came to Pearl River Community College Tuesday, Sept. 23, looking for temporary part-time employees.

"Obviously the technical trades are coveted, but it's open to anyone," said Trey Smith, senior human resources generalist with Kohler.

Students who take the jobs will get a foot in the door and be more likely to work into full-time jobs.

"We prefer to promote from within, so this would be ideal for them," Smith said.

Industries such as Kohler like PRCC's block schedule - used by many of the technical programs - because it gives students a week or two weeks of work time between classes, said Dr. Scott Alsobrooks, PRCC vice president of economic and community development.

While on campus, the Kohler personnel got a look at several of the technical programs, including instrumentation, electronics, electricity and precision machining.

The temporary part-time positions will be available from November through May on Monday-Wednesday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday schedules.

Students can go to www.kohlerjobs.com to apply.
