A group of thirty-five juniors and seniors met with representatives from Google to learn more about the company’s employment and intership opportunities and also to receive advice on drafting stronger resumes in a special seminar hosted by Fisk’s Department of Career Services.
“We were glad to have Andrea Powers, Kyle Ewing and Tamara Mobley from Google on our campus to meet with a delegation of our students,” said Fisk University Director of Career Services Gussie Fuller. “As our students interacted with our guests, they learned helpful information and represented the excellence that is associated with the University.”
“I was completely blown away, not only with the warm welcome we received from everyone at Fisk, but also by the caliber of students we interacted with,” said Kyle Ewing. Ewing serves as lead recruiter for Google’s PSGA University Recruiting Services. “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to get in front of students and we look very forward to strengthening our partnership with Fisk going forward.”
“I was extremely impressed with the students’ eagerness to learn and their genuine interest in Google and the opportunities we have to offer,” said University Programs Specialist Andrea Powers. “I would like to thank the entire Fisk family for having us and I look forward to a continued relationship in the future.”
Students in attendance will have the opportunity to apply for Google’s BOLD (Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development) Internship Program or the Google Start Program. The BOLD initiative is a ten-week paid internship program that matches students with a Google employee and team in either online sales and operations, finance, new business development, people operations, global communications or Google’s North American Sales Organization.
Google’s Start Program hires top college talent to begin their careers as associate managers in marketing or business, financial analysts or associates in sales or policy.
“The resume building session was very helpful ,” said Jocelyn Cole, a senior and history major at Fisk. “It was also beneficial to learn that Google is looking for a diverse workforce with skills from many disciplines.”
