In the three decades since Career Communications Group (CCG) held its first career event, the talent development company has built lasting partnerships.
But CCG’s name doesn’t just resonate with employers who have made important progress toward hiring a workforce that truly reflects America’s diversity.
The company’s audiences of college students and pre-college students have nothing but praise for the work it does. In particular, the job fair at the annual Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Global CCompetitivenessConference.
The BEYA Job Fair connects students and professionals with companies and government agencies. CCG’s annual national conference provides a forum for organizations to find and retain the best and the brightest scientists and engineers.
Below are testimonials from students and professionals who came to the 30th annual BEYA STEM Job Fair held during Black History Month.
“Hello Mr. Taborn, this is Jarett Triplett from Grambling State University.
We met at the host hotel during this year’s BEYA conference.
My two fellow colleagues and I received internships/job offers. We are all from Grambling State. I received an offer from JP Morgan Chase in Delaware. Albert Morris (Junior, Chemistry major) received an internship offer from FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles).
Dominique Wilson (Senior, Engineering Technology major) received a job offer from Huntington Ingalls Industries. Let me know if you have any more questions about our experience.”
“I just want to thank you for inviting ITT Technical Institute students and graduates to the 2016 BEYASTEM/Job Fair Conference. The planning and organization provided were excellent. Our participants were able to be transported from our campus location to the job fair without any miscommunications. Everything was handled in a most professional manner. Our participants expressed their gratitude in having the opportunity to meet with several employers, corporations, and government institutions during the job fair. Many came back with solid contacts and potential employment and internships opportunities that will assist in moving their career goals forward. Again, thanks for the opportunity and we look forward to participating next year. Thanks in advance for your support.”–Tyrone Vines, Career Services Specialist, ITT Technical Institute
“I am a senior mechanical engineering student here at Johns Hopkins, and I just wanted to thank you for making the BEYA trip possible for me and so many of my peers. It was an amazing experience, and I feel like I’ve made so many valuable connections. I greatly appreciate all you’ve done in helping us attend. Thank you.”
“I, along with every student that was able to travel to Philadelphia this weekend, am extremely grateful for the opportunity. Of the ten of us, many had interviews with companies and two of the seniors received full-time offers! Having accepted a full-time offer in the fall myself, I attended a full day’s worth of seminars and workshops which I found extremely useful.
To Christine and Erin, I would like to thank you and the University for funding this opportunity. Having travel, accommodations, and registration covered was a large cost and I hope that our experience can prove the expense was well worth it. We had some issues with Saturday travel and perhaps a refundable security deposit moving forward might need to be implemented to ensure commitment but I would hate to see the university not support the program again because of their actions.
To Rod, thank you for all of your help. It was really valuable to meet with you here at Hopkins before the conference. I’m sure handling so much of the logistics kept you extremely busy during the conference but you were always available whenever I needed help or additional information.
Thank you all again!
I hope that Johns Hopkins can become a consistent attendee to the conference moving forward.
“This is Firmin Saint-Amour, from Towson University. I am emailing you to thank you for reaching and for the amazing opportunity to attend the conference. It was a great experience, talked to a lot of companies, and learned a lot.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this year’s BEYA Conference and made a lot of connections.”
