Congratulations on making a hard, but important, decision to continue your education and thank you for selecting The College of Westchester,” said Rosenberg. 

The Adult Summer session kicks off next week and we wish all our students a very successful and productive term. 

Students Apply for Internships

Friday, July 24, 2015

Internships are nearly a necessity in the quest to find a job in today’s market. First they make the employer more comfortable with a student’s knowledge and experience, and second, it’s a way for a student to understand more about his or her field and either confirm or dissuade his or her career choice. CW takes this premise seriously and once again hosted the Internship Fair. 18 companies attended today and while they all agree that it’s important for students to explore an internship to shape their career, some reps highlighted the top three reasons for taking internships:

1. “Students obtain first-hand knowledge. They immerse themselves and absorb the knowledge by doing it.”Anyitsi Reynolds, H&R Block.
2. “You get real experience, not just academic knowledge. Students have the opportunity to analyze their potential employers and see if they are the right fit for them.” Daniel Lansen, Compufit
3. “It can be a turnaround in their career. They can fix things and make it a long-term career, or is the perfect opportunity to explore other options.” Nicole Johns, The Johns Family Agency.

Other companies attending the Internship Fair included Aflac, Arts Westchester, New York Life, and Women’s Enterprise Development Center.

ANNY, a state-wide network, was formed by higher education professionals representing New York’s private colleges and universities, the State University of New York (SUNY), and the City University of New York (CUNY).  ANNY was a created to stimulate dialogue and the exchange of ideas related to assessment across institutions and to provide support and resources to those committed to meaningful assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness.

Recruiting at CW

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Working during college is a great way to start testing the waters of a professional environment and beef up your resume a bit. A part-time job may be unrelated to a specific major, but students will learn transferable skills desired by employers, including time management, communication, teamwork, leadership, and problem solving. Once again Career Services put together a “Part-Time Job Fair” where 24 companies including Access Health Care Services, Bank of America, Best Buy, and Microsoft recruited CW students.

“We want to make sure that we are the right fit for them, and they’re the right fit for us. We have a high level of retention and we want employees to stay with us,” said John Rota, Training Manager at The Container Store.

Access Healthcare Services was also recruiting with full-time and part-time positions available, looking for the right candidates at CW, “Someone who works in the medical field knows it’s tightly regulated, so individuals who want to work for us need a particular amount of experience or a certification in their field in order for us to hire them,” said Patrick Moroney, Sales Executive at Access Healthcare Services.

Colin Jackson from Bank of America said he enjoys recruiting at CW for very specific reasons, “I like coming to The College of Westchester to recruit because I find better candidates here. They are prepared and feel confident about themselves."
