Many times companies will post job openings in the local media when they have no intention of hiring somebody from the outside. This is done simply to keep the EEOC off their case and unfortunately EKPC seems to do this frequently. Even worse, EKPC and DP&L have partnered with the community college to create a program to train potential power plant operators to fill expected vacancies but what they fail to disclose is that actual number of jobs opportunties is very low with the result that students are being mislead into thinking there will be abundant jobs when they complete the course. Clearly, the winners here are the power plants in that they avoid training costs and the college rakes in tuition cash. Students, however are not even guaranteed an interview upon completion of the course and the most they can hope for is get on a waiting list that I overheard one EKPC offical state was already filled with far more candidates than the expected number of job opportunities for years to come.
yea right

Whats your point?
Its a good deal for the power plants. They get to hire people that have been trained. Some of the students get to COOP. This gives the plants a chance to see the students in a work environment.

The point is that these students are being mislead by the college and the power plants into thinking that they have an excellent chance of getting hired but that simply isn't the case. I took the class and thoroughly enjoyed it and scored an A+. One of the things I noticed right off is that more than half of those attending were employed at the plant by private contractors so I
was already at a disadvantage. And then on the final class after exams I overhead the instructor talking about how the number of qualified students vastly exceeded the number of expected openings. Now I fully understand that there is/was no guarantee of employment but I think the college and the power plants should be a little more honest with students instead of building up false hopes. As it stands, the odds of landing one of those jobs is only slightly better than hitting the lottery.

Yeah, I took those classes too. After I didn't get a co-op after the 2nd semester though I stopped going cause it was too far for me to keep driving.

Why do you always feel compelled to put your "two cents" into something that has nothing to do with you? You really should get a life!
