New graduates can network their way to a new job, Beacom School says

As way to battle post-college worries about job availability, the Beacom School of Business at the University of South Dakota recently held a Meet the Industry event for students.
More than a dozen companies were on hand to “discuss internship and full-time job opportunities and build networking skills” with 71 students, according to USD’s news release.
“This event was a great way to connect regional employers to our Beacom School of Business students," Mandy Hanson, manager of the Beacom School of Business Career Success Center, said in the release "Networking events like this help prepare our students for the workforce by informing them about employment opportunities, current trends in the industry, and educating them on the needs of various industries and employers."
The release listed some of the companies that participated: Avera, Beef Products Inc., Daktronics, First Premier Bank, Heyl Companies, INTL FCStone, Mattress Firm, Metabank, Raven Industries, Sanford Health, Sioux Corporation, gpac and Wells Fargo.
Beacom has earned accolades from the Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report “for its high-quality learning experience, student success, affordability, and high-caliber of faculty and students,” the release said.
