Headed by Director of Career Services Laura McNeel, our Career Services team at the Little Rock Campus held a successful graduate/employer “Meet-and-Greet” event on July 17, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

About 25 graduates took part in the event. They also participated in a drawing at the close of the event, during which six gift cards were given away.

The Campus provided lunch for the employers. Then, everyone in attendance gathered in the auditorium for introductions, and employers shared their interview/job-seeking tips and suggestions with our graduates. Afterward, everyone adjourned to their assigned locations, where graduates could have valuable one-on-one meetings with prospective employers in their fields.(1)

Local employers in attendance included representatives from the following organizations:

  • Arkansas Department of Human Services
  • Pacific Coast Management
  • TeleTech
  • PrimeCare Medical and Wellness Clinic
  • New Hope Prosthetics and Orthotics
  • Securitas
  • Dillard’s Corp.

Campus team members were on hand to address employers’ questions about our training programs and externships. The Campus Library was also open to accommodate anyone who wanted to conduct job-search activities while at the Campus.

Ms. McNeel said, “The response from the employers and graduates was very positive.  The employers appreciated the opportunity to meet available graduates, and our graduates enjoyed the ‘meet-and-greet’ environment and appreciated the advice shared by employers. We know of two confirmed job offers and the potential for more. I believe it was a valuable experience for everyone in attendance.”(1)
