Why Hire ETSU Students and Alumni?

Why Hire ETSU Students and Alumni?

East Tennessee State University is a strong regional university that has developed excellent, accredited academic programs while remaining accessible to students of Northeastern Tennessee and surrounding states. Named a “Best Southeastern College” by the Princeton Review, ETSU attracts students nationally and enrolls a significant number of international students. The total student body is comprised of traditional students and returning, adult students.

ETSU is vital to the regional economy and a major source of human capital for employers. Many students choose to remain in the area after they graduate. That adds value, because well-educated workers living in the geographic area they have chosen provide a stable workforce investing in the future of their company or organization.

Of course, a number of graduates also choose to relocate. Alumni data indicates that ETSU graduates have established successful careers across the United States and in international locations. We encourage all employers, regardless of location, to look closely at the many high-demand skill sets represented by the majors and concentrations offered at East Tennessee State University.
