Vector offers a state-of-the-art, responsive application process, offering immediate access to the summer student work experience.
Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) May 23, 2017
Vector Marketing, the sales and marketing arm of Cutco Cutlery, has created a new Application Center to streamline the application process for its sales representatives. The center is based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It will employ 28 people seasonally to accommodate the swell of applications Vector sees as students seek summer work and jobs with flexible schedules.
Vector Marketing contracts with tens of thousands of college students each year. These Vector student sales reps are responsible for selling millions of dollars of the world’s finest cutlery. Vector is making every effort to make the application process smooth and easy, said recruiting operations manager Jacob Coon.
“This effort dramatically increases our application efficiency process,” said Coon, who has been with the company for some 18 years. “Vector offers a state-of-the-art, responsive application process, offering immediate access to the summer student work experience.”
Applicants looking for summer work can visit the Vector Marketing Work for Students website. From that application site, they can request and schedule an interview via text message with a local Vector Marketing manager. Agents at the Application Center will help schedule these appointments, supporting an existing worldwide recruiting team.
Vector Marketing recently named Kalamazoo, Michigan resident Beth Shishmanian its U.S. Application Manager, responsible for the Application Center. Shishmanian said she is excited to use modern technology such as text messaging to effectively communicate with students applying for work.
“I am thrilled to implement a program that will enhance Vector Marketing’s recruiting operations for this day and age,” she said. “Text messaging is now standard communication for many people. It allows for both speed and efficiency. The center allows for this natural development and will be the hub of recruiting innovation for Vector Marketing.”
