InternCLE Episode 024 – Kent State College of Business Launches a podcast!
Career Services at Kent State College of Business - https://www.kent.edu/business/careers
Andy Weyand is the Associate Director of Career Services at the Kent State College of Business. The idea for a podcast first came up in an employer advisory council meeting. The discussion centered on a new way to get the career services message out to the students. In the employer advisory council meeting there are students present as well. The interaction between the students and those employers in the meetings inspired the theme for the first release of the Kent State College of Business podcast – the Ready for Business Series.
For the podcast, Andy interviewed 10 individuals across 8 companies on campus at Kent, this past spring. The employers were all asked the same questions on topics such as interviewing, resumes, job search advice. Andy then pieced together the conversations and advice into 8 individually themed episodes. The first episode has already launched and focuses on resume content. The production value of the podcast is excellent. New Episodes will launch every other week.
Companies that participated – Vizion360, Sherwin Williams, Fathom, Quicken, Fastenal, BMF, Medical Mutual, FedEx Custom Critical.
A Kent state student studying Marketing will help with the promotion of the podcast. Andy foresees much more student involvement going forward – including student interviews.
Next step for the podcast – a speaker series, some content related to sustainability efforts of the college and more.
