MTSU concrete students speed-network their way to internships

To get a jump-start for summer employment, 25 MTSU Concrete Industry Management students utilized a speed-networking environment to catch recruiters’ attention. On Feb. 25, Nicole Green, the department’s marketing and recruiting coordinator, brought in 18 companies from the industry for the speed-networking event.

Speed-networking and similar events help students meet face-to-face with potential full-time employers. Less than one week after the event, two companies each had hired one student, 11 companies wanted to conduct additional interviews, and seven more companies want to schedule interviews with students.
