Morrison Tech Students In High Demand

Screensho (54)

Morrison Tech’s Career Fair returned this spring on Wednesday, March 13th, 2024 and was open to all students and alumni.  The college hosts two career fairs each academic year; fall and spring. 

“The career fair is such a great opportunity for our students to connect with companies both locally and globally,” stated Jodie Jones, Career Placement Coordinator.  “Our students truly have such an advantage with the companies we host in the Parkinson Auditorium. Exciting, fulfilling careers are at their fingertips.”

From local and regional companies to Fortune 500 corporations, all arrived on campus to network, interview and hire Morrison Tech students and alumni for full time career positions as well as internships.  “It always amazes me to see the job opportunities that are available in this sector, as well as the high demand specifically for our students,” Jones said.  “We as a college are very proud of our graduation placement of 97%”.

Payton Cassidy, a recent 2023 graduate of the college, was among many alumni representing their companies at the fair.  Payton, who was quickly promoted to Project Manager at Shive-Hattery, has referenced the integral part Morrison Tech played in jump starting his career and always returns to campus with an enthusiastic spirit when reconnecting with his former classmates, instructors, and staff. 

“Connections are key,” stated Jodie Eaker, VP of Admissions, “Without connections, you will remain stagnant.  Getting your foot in the door at many companies begins with the first person you meet from that company.  Knowing people in their field of study will help graduates discover which positions are best suited for them. I was thrilled to see the nearly 100% turnout of our students for the event.  This is their first step to lifelong connections in their employment world.” 

Morrison Tech’s next Career Fair will be held on October 15, 2024.
