Career Night Introduces Employers to Pfeiffer and Brings Alumni and Students Together

careernight 1 resizedOn Feb. 9, students from Pfeiffer's Misenheimer campus participated in Career Night, an event co-sponsored by the Alumni Association and Student Government Association (SGA) that brought representatives from a variety of corporations and nonprofit organizations, including several alumni, to Stokes Student Center to network and share information about specific careers and industries.

“It's important to demonstrate to students that alumni take their needs seriously,” said Pixie Klein Gentle '83, president of Pfeiffer's Alumni Board. “This opportunity allows students and alumni to get to know each other better, spotlights the career success that is possible with a Pfeiffer education and introduces employers from the greater community to Pfeiffer and the caliber of our students.”

Pfeiffer alumni who participated included Tomy Aldridge '75 (business), Charlotte Cooper Cherry '72 (education), Stephania Hyatt Cude '72 (education), Jeff DeBoy '84 (sales), Roseann DeTommaso '85 (law enforcement), Ben Devoid '82 (ministry), Brian Edwards '11 (IT), Stephanie Wilson Furr '85 (nursing), Pixie Gentle '83 (physical therapy), John Howard '10 (youth ministry), Al Rose ‘63 (business), Herb Schneider '69 (banking), and Susan Ingram Sharples '76 (education).

Students realize the necessity of these kinds of experiences as they consider the current job market; that's why they requested an event like Career Night at a recent SGA Town Hall Meeting,” said Jenna Gulledge '12, president, Student Government Association. “It's great that alumni who were in the same position when they were students are willing to share their expertise and offer advice to Pfeiffer students who are just starting their careers.”

If you are interested planning or in participating in future Career Night events, please contact Pixie Klein Gentle '83, president, Alumni Board, abod@fsmail.pfeiffer.edu.
