PREMIER Wins CO-OP Employer Award
On October 4th, 2013, PREMIER System Integrators, Inc. was awarded the “Co-Op Employer of the Semester” by the Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN. PREMIER earned this distinction through its continual efforts and emphasis on providing a rich learning experience for the co-op engineering students we employ, along with the overwhelming positive responses provided by the students themselves upon returning to school.
The co-op engineering program at PREMIER is huge win-win for both the organization and the university. Tennessee Technological University wins in that they are able to facilitate placement of their students upon graduation and increase their reputation in the region for producing quality graduates. PREMIER wins by being able to recruit entry-level talent already possessing much of the necessary training and entry-level skills to contribute immediately to our continuous growth. Upon graduating, many of our co-op engineers choose PREMIER as the organization they want to continue their careers with and call home. In fact, over 25% of our current staff at our Smyrna, TN office graduated from the Tennessee Technological University.
