Employer Visits Campus to Encourage Students



Oct 27, 2014

Thirty students at the Bartlett Campus attended a session with three staff members from Aerotek recently.  The representatives were: Nadine Garrett, Recruiting Manager for the Scientific / Professional Division; Karena Walker, On Site Manager – with Aerotek at Accredo and Annie McKenzie, On-Premise Manager with Aerotek at Teleflex.

Aerotek is an operating company of Allegis Group® Inc., the largest recruiting and staffing company in the U.S. Allegis Group is comprised of a group of specialty service companies that provide niche staffing services throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. They have several divisions that they staff for in Memphis including professional services, scientific, engineering, automotive, and warehousing/distribution. They hire HIM grads as well as pharmacy tech, medical assistants, accounting and administrative grads.  The representatives talked about a wide range of topics including résumés and how important it is to be very detailed about your skills, interviewing and appropriate attire, the importance of being punctual, professional manners, maintaining a positive attitude and the emphasis of written language. 

The recruiters mentioned that they  ask the college to provide information regarding graduates’ attendance.  Their logic is that if a student had poor attendance in school it might be the same way when the grad begins working.  They also talked about being professional on Facebook pages.
Medical assisting student Latoiya Burton shared that she received some important and helpful information from the recruiters, and felt she would greatly enjoy working with them.

Aerotek is a previous recipient of the Distinguished Community Employer award by the Bartlett Campus because they have hired its students and graduates, attended job fairs, and given presentations such as this one.
