Defiance College Partnership for Jobs

Office of Career Development

Defiance College Partnership for Jobs
(DCPJ) is a program that provides partial funding for student jobs in the Defiance area community. Defiance College will provide 50% of the funding to defray the costs of up to 2000 hours of student employment in local organizations. The DCPJ program is open to non-profit, public and private for-profit organizations. Each qualifying organization agrees to pay 50% of the students’ wages, or $4.05 per hour. Here is how it works:

Employers complete one application per position. Career Development staff review each application and contact the supervisor to set up a site visit. The supervisor must agree to hire the student, conduct a formal interview process, set up regular supervision meetings with the hired student, track and certify all hours worked, and commit to periodic meetings with a Career Development representative.

Defiance College will recruit and pre-screen all students before sending them to the employer, hold regular on-campus meeting with community work study students, commit to periodic meetings with the employer, and reimburse employer for 50% of the wages earned by the DC student employee.
