The Lee University School of Business hosted a recruiting and networking event, affording students the opportunity to meet with a variety of organizations, get information about their current area of study, and discover possible internship and full-time job opportunities.  

“The excitement from the students and businesses that fills the building during our professional recruiting event is something I look forward to each fall,” said Amy Dummer, assistant professor of accounting. “I am so grateful for such an amazing community of professionals who continuously support Lee and our students.”  

During the event, current business students interacted with more than 40 organizations including Amazon, Ernst & Young, Legacy Village of Cleveland, Life Care Centers of America, McKee Foods, HHM CPAs, UNUM, and US Xpress. These businesses were in many industries such as accounting, banking, logistics, manufacturing, retail, health care, and insurance.  

Over 120 students were in attendance, many of whom took advantage of the opportunity to take professional headshots.  

Finance major Seth Countess said, “Having an opportunity to listen and network with so many different firms and businesses from this area was so helpful. I was able to get an idea of what internships are available as I move forward. Additionally, I got to gain some insight into different avenues to consider with my degree upon graduation.”  

“It is a joy to attend a college that offers consistent opportunities to engage with local businesses on campus,” said Christian Cline, a business administration major. “I have seen myself grow in the skill of interpersonal communication through the numerous events that I have been able to attend in the last year, and I can say with confidence that Lee has and will continue to fulfill a significant role in building my network for the years to come.”  

Over half of the businesses that attended brought Lee alumni to help recruit, some of whom got their positions through connections made at the recruiting event that took place last year.  

“This event provided the much-needed avenue to connect with the next generation of business leaders in our community,” said Lee alum Logan Manning, director of sales and marketing at Legacy Village of Cleveland. “We were able to talk to several students regarding internship opportunities, jobs to get experience while they work on the completion of their respective degrees, and what a ‘day in the life’ looks like in our very own work lives. This proved to be as beneficial as it was eye-opening.”
