The Tri-State World Trade Network, the University of Evansville, and the University of Southern Indiana are teaming up with area businesses and industries to host an event designed to help college students learn about the skills necessary to work with global companies. The event, A World of Opportunity, will take place from 6- 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 8 in Eykamp Hall at the University of Evansville.
The guest speaker will be Randy Alsman, former president of Mead Johnson Nutritionals, who will discuss attributes executives from international companies in southern Indiana look for when hiring. After hearing Alsman’s address, students will rotate through breakout sessions where they will hear from 10 companies about qualities needed to work globally, career paths, and entry-level opportunities. A networking event after the breakout sessions will give students opportunities for one-on-one discussions with these industry officials.
The Tri-State World Trade Network, supported by The Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Indiana, promotes exporting and international trade in the Tri-State by sponsoring educational activities, programs, and events designed to increase knowledge, promote understanding, and encourage participation in international trade.
Event registration for college students begins at 5:30 p.m.
