SoBA Career Development Receives Grant from Enterprise Holdings Foundation
SoBA Career Development recently received a grant from Enterprise Holdings Foundation to help support the activities related to the program. This fully donor-funded program was created in 2005 to help students develop a career focus while in college.
Returning employers now call the program one of their “best recruiting tools.” Each semester, SoBA Career Development reaches nearly 2,000 students through workshops, networking events, career fairs and opportunities to connect with potential employers.
A portion of the grant also went to support the University of Montana central Career Services program. SoBA’s Career Development program works in conjunction with UM’s Career Services to give students the best possible chance to compete in the business world. Both programs provide educational, career and life-planning services to assist students in achieving their personal and professional goals.
The Enterprise Holdings Foundation was established to allow the company to give back to the communities where their customers and employees live and work. As an employer, Enterprise has been involved and committed to both programs for a number of years. Their private support and partnership with UM help students gain invaluable experience planning and achieving their career goals.
