MANPOWER

Due to the nation’s low unemployment rate, many students will be trading in their textbooks for paychecks this summer, according to Manpower Inc., the world’s largest staffing firm.

"Nationwide, businesses are feverishly trying to fill positions for workers at all skill levels, presenting summer job seekers with an opportunity to find employment," said Mitchell S. Fromstein, Manpower chairman and CEO. "Summer employment can be a turning point for students as they solidify their career goals, build upon their skills, and put their talents to work."

Manpower expects to fill approximately 100,000 technical, office, and light industrial positions across the country in a variety of fields including finance, information technology, manufacturing, and customer service, among others. By working with Manpower, students can enhance what they have learned in the classroom by gaining real work experience.

"Manpower can serve as a launching pad for an individual’s career," said Fromstein. Some students on Manpower assignments receive job offers even before they graduate. Approximately 42% of Manpower’s workforce annually transitions from temporary to permanent jobs.

In addition to gaining practical work experience, Manpower employees can increase their marketability by advancing their computer skills. The company offers free computer training to all of its workers on the most popular software packages and the latest client/server, networking, and operating system technologies.

How to be ahead of the game:

Don’t Wait - inquire now about summer employment opportunities.

Be Selective – explore all options so the job you find will provide experience in your field of interest.

Commit for the Duration – remember you want to be able to use a summer employer as a reference, so stay on board for the term agreed upon.

Seek Training if you want to advance your skills, ask your summer employer about training opportunities.

Manpower Inc., the world’s largest staffing firm, annually provides employment and training to approximately two million people through 3,200 offices in 52 countries, including more than 200 technical offices worldwide specializing in the assignment of information technology, engineering, scientific, accounting, and telecommunications professionals.
