Congratulations to our domestic interns in the on-campus master's program. The fall and spring entering classes combined for a 94% placement rate by June 2017, upholding the success of prior classes.
This year our company support again comes largely from PepsiCo, who hired eight interns for locations nationwide. The Boeing Company and GE hired six interns apiece. We appreciate the continued support of these partners and look forward to a great summer with a lot of success in their organizations.
International recruiting, led by Jason Boys, has been an additional focus for LER Career Services. In the past year, faculty and staff have travelled overseas to engage with employers and strengthen the alumni network. Their efforts have resulted in an increase in the international companies working with career services to identify talent. Despite differing recruitiing timelines, 47% of international students reported internship placement in organizations such as Cummins, Honeywell, IBM, Microsoft, and Whirlpool.
