The 2013 Belmont University Technology Career Day Event was held on Oct. 1 in the Massey Boardroom. The event was co-sponsored by Belmont’s Institute for Computing Related Disciplines (ICoRD) and The College of Business Career Development Center. It was open to business and science students interested in learning about opportunities for internships or seeking a full-time career after graduation in technology.
Representatives from the following organizations attended: Aegis Science Corporation, Jackson National, Arbor Health, Comdata, Emma, Lifeway, HCA/Parallon, Cigna/HealthSpring, and Campground Automation Systems. These companies are interested in hiring students from across many disciplines for internships and entry level jobs with specific interests in those majoring in computer science, web development, mathematics, information systems management and chemistry. According to Dr. Glenn Acree, director of ICoRD, Belmont currently has interns and recent graduates working at most of these companies. Internships range from $12 to $19 per hour with recent graduates receiving offers from the mid-$40,000’s to the mid-$60,000.
