Student Business Summit
A USF business student organization is trying to give not just its members, but students from all over Florida, a hand in the brutal job market with a daylong summit on global business. University Beat on WUSF TV has the story.
With a less than rosy employment picture for college graduates, an organization led by USF business students tried to help their peers from across Florida get their footing in the global job marketplace. A recent free, daylong summit brought almost 600 students together with business experts and representatives of more than 30 international companies and organizations. University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes you there.
USF International Business Board President Jamie Kenney talks about the purpose of the Florida Student Summit on Global Business, the focus on international business, and the response from both students and the companies attending.
Jamie Kenney explains that his first plan after graduating this May is launching a website, www.TampaBayOrgs.com.
USF International Business Board Director of Social Events Kelly Torres and group member Spencer Hayes talk about what the IBB offers USF students.
Summit keynote speaker, Rick Gallegos, President & CEO of Dale Carnegie Tampa Bay, gives some advice for students looking for work.
