On Tuesday, October 19, Morrison Tech hosted a Fall Career Fair. The event brought employers and students together for their first step in finding full-time employment and internships. Over fifteen area employers, including Collins Aerospace, The US Army Corps of Engineers, CB&I, IDOT, and IMEG met with students and graduates in the Parkinson Auditorium.
Morrison Tech is known for its ROI (Return on Investment), high career placement percentage, and healthy average starting salary. Recently the college was ranked number one on ROI for two-year schools in the Midwest.
Employers continually return to campus and recruit students because of their previous experience with proven Morrison Tech graduates. Some of these partnerships span nearly half a century. In fact, several Morrison Tech graduates were on campus recruiting the next generation of employees for their respective companies.
The students at Morrison Tech were excited about the opportunities provided by the career fair. They turned out professionally dressed with resumes in hand to explore the available positions. Many of the students walked in with a stack of resumes and walked out with business cards, brochures, new contacts, and big smiles. Employers also left pleased with the potential prospects. One employer shared that they had gotten more “A grade” candidates at this event than they had found at nearby university career fairs.
The Career Fair is a reminder for students, faculty, and staff that two years of hard work and preparation lead to exciting and fulfilling careers for graduates.
