Grow Your Own Workforce

80510120.jpgA source of trained and available skilled workers to replenish and upgrade the workforce is a primary concern for the energy industry. As the national resource for the energy industry, BSC is always looking for opportunities to train and supply candidates to industry as upcoming retirements and expansions occur across our nation.

Reaching the local population, creating interest in the opportunities, then training local talent most often will result in successful retention of employees.

Bismarck State College has several options to assist companies with recruiting local students to grow their own workforce: 
  • Provide sponsorships, scholarships or tuition reimbursement to students.
  • Provide job shadowing, mentoring or internship opportunities for students as they progress through a program.
  • Host "Energy Career Days" to invite high school students, parents, career counselors and instructors to the facility to generate interest in the careers and positions available. BSC information will be available during these events. A BSC representative will also be available, per company request.
  • Mention BSC in letters to applicants who do not meet qualifications, indicating BSC offers online programs to meet company's position requirements.
  • Co-advertise in local media including company logo or statement of support of BSC programs, indicating the company recognizes the BSC programs and has hired graduates in the past. Click on the sample ads below which can be customized based on company needs:
