Grand re-opening for College of Business Career Experience Center

February 19, 2008

The Career Experience Center in Indiana State University’s College of Business will stage a grand re-opening Feb. 26-28 as the class of 2008 prepares for graduation.

During the three-day event, business students can take part in presentations about the Sycamore CareerLink job database and MyPlan, a new online tool that includes self-assessment tests, information about salaries and required training for various careers, and a video library covering approximately 500 careers and industries.

Students will also have an opportunity to take part in a roundtable discussion with marketing professionals Sally Whitehurst of First Financial Bank, Charlie Williams of WilliamsRandall Marketing and Shelley Klingerman of SonyDADC.

Launched in 2004, thanks in part to a gift from the State Farm Companies Foundation, the Career Experience Center partners with ISU’s Career Center. Housed on the first floor of the College of Business, the center provides resources for business students to research career options and improve their interviewing and resume skills.

Kimberly LaGrange of Terre Haute is the Career Experience Center’s new coordinator. A business instructor at Indiana State, LaGrange holds a master of business administration degree from ISU and has more than 17 years of experience in human resources management.
