A $1,000 gift from Enterprise Holdings to Co-op, Career and Employment Services recognizes a long-standing relationship that has fostered exchange of expertise.
Nick Harris, group talent acquisition manager for the transportation solutions provider with operations in 80 countries, was on campus last week to put a cheque into the hands of acting executive director Chris Busch.
“UWindsor has been a constant source of quality management trainee and summer intern hires for us,” Harris said. “We wanted say thank you, and to give back to the campus for all of the work they do to develop such high-quality candidates.”
Enterprise has been a partner in creating experiential learning opportunities for UWindsor students since 1999. Over the past 18 years, the company has provided numerous opportunities for work-integrated education and hired many graduates, Busch noted.
“It is a wonderful gesture of Enterprise Holdings to invest in the resources that provide students with first-rate opportunities to develop their professional skills and become career-ready talent,” he said. “We are very grateful.”
Co-op, Career and Employment Services works with hundreds of local, national and international employers to secure work-integrated learning opportunities for students and permanent positions for alumni.
