Rogue showcases waste-related career opportunities at two area-wide recruiting events

April was job fair month in southern Oregon, with the companies of Rogue Waste, Inc. on hand at two events to talk with prospective employees about the types of jobs available at the company.

Meeting college students at the Southern Oregon University job fair

On April 10, Southern Oregon University (SOU) held its annual Career, Internship and Job Fair on the Ashland SOU campus. This was a chance for students to meet face-to-face with area employers to learn more about their companies and the variety of positions they offer. For Rogue, it meant being able to show prospective employees the wide breadth of career opportunities available with the company — everything from drivers, mechanics and heavy equipment operators to customer service representatives, pay attendants and dispatchers, as well as jobs related to environmental services and more. Since open positions are always changing, potential employees were encouraged to sign up for job alerts that will notify them if a position they’re interested in becomes available.

Danielle Womble, a recruiter for Waste Connections, Brenda Olfson, Director of Operations Services, and Bekah Hix, Executive Assistant to the Rogue Management Team were on hand to speak with students, provide information and answer questions.

Meeting high schoolers at the Careers In Gear event

On April 25, the Jackson County Fairgrounds was the site of the Careers In Gear annual career expo and job fair. Students from dozens of high schools across the region were on hand to meet with over 150 local businesses and organizations — including the companies of Rogue Waste, Inc.

Rogue was well represented by four employees, including Chris Anderson, a heavy equipment mechanic at the Dry Creek Landfill, Josh Cole, the Commercial Operations Supervisor, Brenda Olfson, Director of Operations Services, and Bekah Hix, Executive Assistant to the Rogue Management Team. Participants were engaged and interested in the variety of career types at Rogue and saw the organization as a well-established company that provides stability, competitive wages and benefits that encompass families — along with room for employee growth and career development.

Shining a spotlight on local careers

Job fairs like this give high schoolers and college students the perfect opportunity to meet with representatives from a wide range of regional employers — learning about entry-level positions as well as the chance for advancement. These events also give companies a chance to show potential team members more about the opportunities for employment. And it’s another way for Rogue to be out in the community, making connections and supporting residents.
