Employment Center to host Employer Panel

Diverse employers will educate students and alumni for an Employer Panel during an economic crisis. The Career Development Center will be hosting an event for students and alumni to become educated on what employers are looking for in potential candidates for hiring. Donnell Turner, director for the CDC said the event will provide knowledge for future job seekers. “The Employer Panel is designed to provide students information on ‘what does an employer look for in a potential employee,’” Turner said. Nursing major Kaylee Ayers said she will be attending the event by the CDC and advises others to do the same. She said it’s important to attend because one of these individuals can be possible future employers. “I have attended one of these before,” Ayers said. “I have learned what employers might be looking for in possible candidates for job positions.” The panel will feature different speakers from numerous industries for non-profit and profit. The CDC website shows that Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Super Target, State Farm, Federated Mutual Insurance, U.S.P. Leavenworth and UMB are just a few industries that will be speaking. “I believe that, collectively, they will offer students at Missouri Western with a diverse set of expectations to consider as they transition into the real world of work,” Turner said. The downturn in the current economy and the competitiveness of the job market should influence students to attend this event Turner said. Those students who plan to attend could benefit from this event and see how to improve what they need to for future interviews. “Graduating students should flock to an event such as this,” Turner said, “to ascertain information that could potentially assist them in their job search.” Students who plan to attend this event have the opportunity for a Q-and-A session after the employers speak on behalf of their companies. Turner said that each employer is allowed an allotted time to speak, and there will be a break-out session for students to interact with the employers. Darian Cunningham, civil engineering major said he will be attending the event and is excited to hear from the numerous speakers about the job market. “I am going because it’s important to me to get a job in the future,” Cunningham said. “I think it will be great to get some knowledge about what employees are looking for.” The main purpose of this event is to get students out and aware about potential job possibilities and interaction with these employers. Turner said it’s an employers' market right now, and he wants students well prepared, equipped, and ready to contend with the enormous task. “My primary purpose and interest for Missouri Western students is that they are able to contend with the competition in the job market,” Turner said. “Both from former graduates and experienced, downsized professionals.” The event is from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 6. It will be held in the Enright Rooms 214 and 216, and lunch will be provided for the first 75 students who register.
