What employers are saying about the CAL Center

“The Onondaga Community College Career and Applied Learning Center has been instrumental in FedEx Ground’s continued recruiting success.  Whether it be scheduling a recruiting event, posting flyers, or web exposure, the office’s cooperation is indispensable in regards to the placement of their students in our workforce.  Currently, FedEx Ground employs forty-nine O.C.C. students.”

“Our experience with the Onondaga Career and Applied learning Center has been a rewarding one. The staff was most professional and responsive in assisting us with the recruitment of a student for our internship program in the Quality Assurance discipline. The student they referred required little training, has good demeanor with other associates, and has adapted readily to the multi-functional quality challenges faced in today’s global environment.”

- Bob Seiselmyer, Quality Assurance Manager, McQuay International

“Food Bank is pleased to partner with Onondaga and the internship program. The internship coordinator was very responsive to our business needs by quickly sending us candidates and advertising our internship posting. We were able to get a qualified intern within two weeks of contacting Onondaga Community College. The intern is professional, friendly, eager to learn and willing to learn all the different aspects of Food Bank accounting. We look forward to continuing our relationship as we work toward filling the fall 2008 intern position.”
