Employers



Highline College Community & Employment Services has over thirty years experience creating successful job matches. Our success rate tells the story. Forty six percent of the individuals supported by CES who are employed have been in their current jobs for over 5 years. How do we achieve this? CES staff consult with employers to provide job analyses, orientations, and personal coaching in order to obtain and maintain a successful job match. CES services are at no cost to the employer and meet the reasonable accommodation standards required by the American with Disabilities Act.

Employers may also post job opportunities using our online database available through Workforce Development Services.

Screening

CES staff work with students to assess their skills, interests and abilities. These assessments are conducted through on-campus instruction and community-based job experiences. Because we are part of a community college we have the advantage of linking students to additional training opportunities if students need fine-tuning of their skills. For those who are employment ready, we move on to the next step.

Job match

Once the student has been assessed, CES staff work to obtain employment positions with organizations where job responsibilities match the student’s skills set. CES evaluates the environment, supports, and tasks of any potential job in an effort to make a good match for an organization’s business and culture.

Placement

Once you’ve selected a student for your position, CES staff can assist during the initial orientation and training. Once the basic job skills are acquired and the employee is comfortable in their new role, we will continue to be available to provide long-term support.

Long-term follow along

CES is successful when our candidates and employers succeed. We check in regularly and are available to provide training support when changes in the work site require new skills. We will continue to team with you and your employee throughout their employment with your company. That’s part of our commitment to you and to our student. Some employers we work with are:
