Employers

Thank you for your interest in the possibility of reaching out to LFCC students for job opportunities in your organization!  We value and support our local employers in their endeavors to recruit locally for their open positions.  Many Workforce students are full-time working adults, who attend classes outside of their work time.  In some cases, these students have received tuition assistance from their employers as part of their training and development program. For these reasons, we do not allow direct employment recruitment to occur in our classrooms.  We do however share with these students ways to learn about these opportunities if they have an interest.  We encourage employers to use these established recruitment processes at LFCC to reach this audience of students who may have an interest in your current job openings.

Advertise Your Employment Opportunities

Post Your Job Openings

Thank you for being a part of the LFCC Community and for your interest in hiring our students. We are very excited about the new LFCC Online Career Coach site! This site will allow all approved employers to post jobs and search for student resumes.

The Winchester Star

MIDDLETOWN — Software development firm employee Lynn McElhaney has made four trips to Disney without leaving the state.

Instead of going to Orlando, she has been coming to Lord Fairfax Community College, where Workforce Solutions hosted its fourth annual Disney Institute on Tuesday.

“I was one of the few that said, ‘Yes, I’ve been here all four years,’” said McElhaney, who works for a data integration firm in Reston. “I always come away with at least one really good idea that can change something in our company.”

Disney Institute senior facilitators Tom Madden and Mike McLean hope that of the six or seven values they present, attendees can take away three or four that will work at their own companies.

“Disney is a business just like anyone else when you strip away the magic and so on,” Madden said during a lunch break Tuesday. “We have strong business principles around leadership, around creativity and innovation and brand loyalty that really can be adapted by virtually any organization.”

Madden said the institute is put on all over the world.

About 160 people attended Tuesday’s event, said Christine Kriz, business and industry training coordinator for Workforce Solutions.

The cost of the session was $495 a person, although there were discounts for people who had attended past institutes and for companies sending more than one employee. Continue reading Disney Institute Pays Off For Attendees
