The Business Career Center works with many employers who enjoy speaking to classes. Contact Laura Niles or the Business Career Center if you would like help identifying employer contacts. We cannot guarantee employers will be available, but we will do our best to connect faculty with employers. Employers can:

Connect with Employers

Employers appreciate connecting with faculty and staff to share information about their organizations and industries. These connections may help faculty and staff for classroom presentations or site visits.

Employer in Residence

A different employer is featured each day throughout the school year. Employers may have a booth, provide a lunch and learn, or connect in other ways.

Employer Partners Day

Employer Partners Day allows employers to hear College updates and learn about recruitment trends. Faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in any aspect of the program. At the event, the Sue Vagts Faculty/Staff of the Year award is presented.
