If you own a Gorge business or industry, or work on the human resources side for one of those entities, you probably have thoughts (maybe even strong thoughts) about the caliber of job applicants.
Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) wants to hear those thoughts. Susan Lewis, instructional coordinator at the college, says, employer feedback is vital to the college as it prepares short- and long-term training programs.
“We want our programs to reflect the needs of our Gorge community,” Lewis says. “Without business feedback, we have no way of knowing whether our graduates are meeting your hiring needs.”
Lewis asks people in the hiring pipeline to visit and complete the CGCC Annual Business and Industry Survey.
She notes that some questions on the survey request information regarding employee education and whether it was attained at CGCC.
“This may necessitate some initial research on your part,” she says. “We appreciate your assistance and hope that the information you gather will also be beneficial in your human resource activities as you consider CGCC graduates as potential employees.

Deadline for completing the survey is Dec. 30.
