Industry tours provide help to showcase the successful businesses in our region and make that valuable connection between employers and prospective employees.
For students, the tours offer a valuable opportunity for a "behind the scenes" look at a successful company by meeting the business's leaders and observing day-to-day operations. Perhaps most important, students are able to ask questions to further their understanding not only of the company but of what it would be like to work in that industry. It opens the doors to employment possibilities they might not otherwise have known about.
For employers, the tours build awareness of the contribution they are making not only to that specific industry but to the regional and, sometimes, global economy. Employers have direct, on-site access, to prospective interns and employees who have the education, experience, and enthusiasm to help take their success to the next level.
When registering to schedule a tour, please include:
- Who is your company contact? (name, email, phone)
- Who is the ideal student candidate for you?
- How many students can you accommodate on the tour?
- What is the best day and time for the tour?
- Will internships be available?
Students may register for a tour by contacting Career Services office in the Student Union G-52 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
