  • Opportunity to evaluate a potential employee prior to making a long-term commitment
  • Quality source of motivated workers
  • Enhanced cost effectiveness of recruitment and training method to cover fluctuating personnel needs
  • Enhanced relation with colleges and students

The Career Services professional staff can review student resumes to refer those closely suited to your needs. In addition to coordinating referrals, the coordinators assist with evaluations and other relevant forms. To participate in or learn more about the program, contact Career Services at 812-464-1865.
