Beacom Students Explore Opportunities During Meet the Industry Event
Meet the Industry allowed students the chance to build relationships that could lead to employment after graduation and helped students gain confidence interacting with business professionals. Of the 71 students in attendance, 64 undergraduates representing eight Beacom majors participated. Seven joint degree and graduate business students also attended.
“This event was a great way to connect regional employers to our Beacom School of Business students," said Mandy Hanson, manager of the Beacom School of Business Career Success Center. "We had employers from numerous industries come to campus to share information about their company, and part-time, full-time and internship opportunities. Networking events like this help prepare our students for the workforce by informing them about employment opportunities, current trends in the industry and educating them on the needs of various industries and employers."
Firms that attended included Avera, Beef Products Inc., Daktronics, First Premier Bank, Heyl Companies, INTL FCStone, Mattress Firm, Metabank, Raven Industries, Sanford Health, Sioux Corporation, gpac and Wells Fargo.
