The University Dermatology Center in Muncie, Ind. has been working with Harrison College students since 2008. Office Manager Angel Cummings says that the Harrison College students referred to her over the years for externships have been hardworking, dedicated individuals. So much so, in fact, that she has hired six Harrison College graduates for fulltime positions.
“They have contributed quite a bit,” Cummings said of the Harrison graduates. “They have become team leaders and encourage the other employees to work harder.”
Cummings says that Harrison College graduates share a couple of common traits: they are “very dedicated to their job and their family.” This is not surprising, given Harrison’s culture of promoting the core values of faith, family, health and job.
Cummings advises other employers to arrange externships through Harrison College. She says, “… it is a great tool for training future employees.”
