The Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech has received a $40,000 gift from the Dominion Foundation to help Pamplin students with their career search.
The gift will be used to create a Web application to match students with their ideal employer and employers with their ideal recruits. “This system will generate leads and provide a user-friendly experience where both students and employers can be identified based on specific preferences,” said Stuart Mease, director of undergraduate career services.
Pamplin students continue to be popular among employers, with five of the college’s majors routinely among the 10 majors most sought after by recruiters visiting campus, according to the university’s career services office. The college’s Business Horizons career fair, organized annually by Pamplin undergraduates, attracted more than 130 employers this fall.
