Dr. Edna Grover-Bisker, director of career opportunities and employer relations (COER) at Missouri University of Science and Technology, and Adrienne Neckermann, COER assistant director, will be featured as presenters at the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) conference on June 11 in San Antonio, Texas.
Grover-Bisker and Neckermann will showcase Missouri S&T’s externship program model, a job-shadowing program, and how it benefits students.
“Students who participate in an externship gain degree-related experience for their resume, learn about their potential career path and whether it is the right one for them, and network with employers,” says Grover-Bisker.
“Employers get an opportunity to review a student and determine if they would like to ask them back to interview for co-op, internship, or full-time positions,” Neckermann adds.
NACE is the leading source of information on the employment of college educated individuals. It forecasts hiring and trends in the job market; tracks starting salaries, recruiting and hiring practices, and student attitudes and outcomes; and identifies best practices and benchmarks. NACE connects more than 5,200 college career services professionals at nearly 2,000 colleges and universities nationwide, as well as more than 3,000 human resources or staffing professionals who are focused on university relations and recruiting.
“We would like to share the success COER has had with the externship program and help make Missouri S&T more visible to other schools and employers,” Grover-Bisker says.
