With majors in business management, paralegal studies, health professions, interior design, information technology, computer programming, social media marketing, and applied technology, LDSBC trains students to be proficient in a shorter time period. The hands-on, project-based classes optimize students’ two-year investment, and they enter the workforce sharp and prepared.
“We love LDSBC students,” said Ashley Vigil, a recruiter at Wells Fargo Bank. “They are hard workers and super motivated. They show engagement in what they do, and they demonstrate loyalty to the company.” Some students are even hired before graduation based on their impressive skills.
When LDSBC held a career fair August 3, 2016 on campus, 33 companies sent representatives to meet with students. Bradley Dean was there for staffing giant Aerotek because of the “qualifications, training, and professionalism” of LDSBC students. He noted that Aerotek considered LDSBC a strong candidate as they looked to place exceptional people in hundreds of thousands of jobs and positions throughout the country.
Hunter Asmus attended the fair on behalf of Panda Express restaurant. It was his first visit to LDSBC, and he said, “I was really impressed. Panda Express prides itself on hiring great people, and we like to treat our employees well. I plan to return to find more qualified and professional prospects for the company.”
The skill level of LDSBC students was a big draw for Jennifer Desmond, an IKEA recruiter who commented on the mastery she observed. IKEA is the world’s largest retail furniture manufacturer, and she said one LDSBC alumnus is now a planner in charge of IKEA retail expansion throughout the United States.
“The Summer 2016 Career Fair marks the largest fair to date for LDS Business College,” said Justin Jones, director of Career Services on campus. “We hosted 33 diverse employers who came to network with highly qualified individuals. The local and national companies loved the talent on display, as well as the strong work ethic. Students were interviewed from every program at the College, making the fair a big success for all involved.”
