Employer of the Year Award

Emerson named 2019 Co-op Employer of the Year


Our Employer of the Year for 2019 is Emerson!

Our co-op partnership with Emerson began in 2006, believe it or not!  We have had a steady and growing partnership since then.  A total of 85 co-ops have been hired, and as you know, many are there as full-time employees!  Emerson has hired students from a variety of majors including electrical, chemical, computer, and mechanical.  Some of our greatest current mentors with Emerson are former co-ops themselves.

Emerson has also gone above and beyond by participating in many of our professional development activities, including this year’s Speed Networking event, which was very well received by our students.  

We value our partnership so very much, and appreciate everything that Emerson has done to make certain our student have a consistently excellent experience.   Accepting the award for Emerson were Kelly Sterniak, manager of talent management and development, and Caitlin Mabbett, manager of human resources information systems and human resources programs.
