Allconnect announces college hiring program
LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 19, 2012) — Allconnect, an Atlanta-based provider for connecting consumers with household services, is hiring more than 70 college students in the next 60 days for summer positions in their Lexington sales center at the UK Coldstream Research Campus and plans to fill more than 200 positions overall in the coming months.
The College Summer Program offers students full-time summer employment at a competitive base pay plus guaranteed commissions. When students return to school, Allconnect can work with their schedules to retain them on a part-time basis. While previous sales experience is preferred, it is not required, as all hires participate in a six-week paid training program to learn the products and sales process.
“Allconnect provides a top-notch work environment, stable hours and an entry-level earning potential that is rarely found in our community,” said John Hegeman, Sales Center Supervisor. “As a University of Kentucky grad, I wish Allconnect was here while I was in school. I would have loved the money, the stability, and the opportunity to get some work experience in the business world.”
Allconnect opened their Lexington sales center in July 2011. Since opening, the company has promoted more than a dozen associates into supervisory and support level positions. The office continues to grow and is expected to reach full capacity in late 2013.
“I’m extremely excited about the program” said Jim Rasnick, General Manager and Vice President of Sales for Allconnect’s Lexington Sales Center. “Students who join our team for the summer have a fantastic opportunity to gain real-world, resume-building experience, while earning great income over the summer. And those students who are interested in furthering their careers beyond the summer will have an opportunity to work on a part-time basis while continuing their education.”
