Students transitioning from college to employment and the College of Medicine’s Match Day will headline the next edition of UToledo Inside Wednesday, March 26, at 11 a.m. in the Student Union South Lounge.
University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs will host along with Larry Burns, UT vice president for external affairs. Jacobs will take questions live, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and by way of UT’s social media platforms. The event will be webcast live at video.utoledo.edu.
One year ago, UT joined with the Detroit-based firm Digerati to launch Intern in Ohio, a student-employer matching service designed to help students land internships and make them more marketable upon graduation.
Jacobs and Burns will discuss how Intern in Ohio and the digital portfolio company, Seelio, are helping students market themselves to employers, and how some faculty are using these services to augment their instruction with Debra Davis, dean of the College of Communications and the Arts, Dave Strukel, associate lecturer of communication, and Ed Lingan, associate professor and chair of the Department of Theatre and Film.
The president also will welcome to the show three graduating seniors who already have secured jobs or job offers to discuss the paths they took and how younger students can follow in their steps.
Dr. Ron McGinnis, interim dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, and a graduating medical student will discuss last Friday’s Match Day, when graduating medical students across the nation learn where they will complete their residencies.
Jacobs and Burns also will discuss the upcoming UT Climate Survey of employees and students, an April 2 open house with Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Mich., and successful seasons of men’s and women’s basketball.
