The College partners with employers to offer "Employer Days," welcoming employers to campus and encouraging interactions with students in the classroom setting. Topics that guest speakers address vary depending on the course. Students are encouraged to use this opportunity to ask meaningful questions of employers and network with them regarding future career or internship/co-op opportunities. Moreover, these exchanges marry classroom theory with real world scenarios, fostering great synergy for student learning.
On occasion, employers will invite students to networking socials at their places of business. General Shale sponsored such an event in Spring 2013 and 2014. In addition, to enjoying excellent food and freebies, students shared their resumes and interacted with many members of the management team. These events represent great opportunities for students to practice communicating with hiring managers--a vital skill in the marketplace.
