DMACC diesel technology program to host annual job fair


Des Moines Area Community College’s diesel technology program will host its annual fall semester job fair from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 20 on the DMACC Ankeny Campus in Building 14. More than two dozen employers will have booths set up as they seek to fill part- and full-time job positions during the free event. “We generally have approximately 100 students with varying levels of experience and ability ranging from very green first-year students with little shop experience that are ready to get their feet wet with a part-time position to fairly seasoned second-year students with lots of home, shop and farm experience ready to graduate and get started with their careers,” Shea Parsons, DMACC diesel technology instructor and program chair, said in a prepared statement. The diesel technology program is a six-semester, two-year program, learning in a hands-on environment while preparing for careers in diesel repair. “Instruction is in the repair, maintenance and testing of diesel engines, power trains and components of trucks and heavy construction equipment,” Parsons said.
