Vaughn welcomed new and returning recruiters for the annual fall internship fair on Thursday, November 15. More than 20 companies sent representatives to speak to students and extend the opportunity to learn about and explore pre-career opportunities.

“Internships often provide our students with their first hands-n professional experience,” said Jessica Caron, associate director of Career Services. “Internship experience illustrates to employer that our students are prepared for their next steps after graduation.”

Textron Aviation, one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers, attended the internship fair with openings for engineering and airframe and powerplant majors. Brandon Kear, maintenance manager and Jan Chapmon, manager of human resources were thrilled to speak with eager and qualified students.

“Vaughn students are very friendly, and we’re always impressed at how well-prepared they are when they come to speak with us,” said Chapmon. Textron’s internship programs are part of the company’s leadership development program.

The next recruitment event will be the spring career fair on April 11, 2019.
