Rose-Hulman Graduates Ready for Awaiting Jobs
Graduating students at Rose-Hulman Insitutue of Technology credit their education and the school's career placement efforts for having jobs ready and waiting for them prior to graduation.
Ali Fell with Career Services says right now 80% of the graduating class has a job lined up now and she expects that number to increase to more than 90% by the fall. Senior Engineering students Brittney Lake and Brian Lackey have jobs in their field waiting for them when the graduate.
Lake, an electrical engineering student from Pike County, says she will work for Ford on hybrid vehicles. Lackey, who hails from Lexington, Kentucky, says he will work for Texas Instruments. Both credit their education and their participation on the school's career fair in November for their employment.
Fell says students at Rose-Hulman were not really affected by the recession because jobs in their field were still in demand.
