Grads Attend Campus Recruiting Fair and Become Hired

Feb 17, 2014

Linda Key, staffing coordinator of the Abacus Corporation, visited the Nashville Campus on January 28th to recruit for specific positions in the information technology industry.  Several students and graduates interviewed with Ms. Key for available positions.  Information systems engineering graduates Chris Biles and Danny Shelton, who both graduated in 2011, attended to be prepared to interview and were both hired as a result.

Danny worked at a local medical company until he was laid off in 2013 and contacted the career center director, Terri Davis McCall, about employment opportunities in the IT industry.  Although Danny applied with several companies, he remained determined to begin working again.  Danny said, “Any opportunity I get to further my skills in IT is a learning opportunity.” Chris, on the other hand, had a few obstacles in his way that seemed to block his path, but he persevered through them. Chris explained, “I felt like I wasn’t able to work in IT because of my challenges, but I know I’m going to get there because [Terri] continues to push me to not settle for less.”

After interviewing with Ms. Key, both Chris and Danny were invited to attend the orientation the following day and are now working as computer technicians for Abacus Corporation.  Chris and Danny are greatly appreciative to the career center director and encourage students and graduates to take full advantage of the career placement opportunity afforded through the career center at National College. 

Graduate Danny Shelton of the Nashville Campus interviews with Linda Key, staffing coordinator of the Abacus Corporation.  Danny was hired as a computer technician.
