More than 250 companies from across the nation met with technology students in September during the largest ever Company Day event at the KTC. This was the first year the event took place over two full days.
“We absolutely needed to make it a two-day event in order to give our students and the companies in attendance plenty of time to make those valuable face-to-face connections,” Bruce Dallman, dean of the College of Technology, said.
Tim Whittaker, a junior wood technology major, said Company Day is the premier recruiting event of the year.
“As students, we don’t have time to go out and meet all of these companies face to face,” he said. “So it’s great that they all come to us. It’s incredibly beneficial for us, and Pittsburg State makes it happen every year.”
