Educators and businesses come together to close skills gap for students
A story in Minnesota Business featured Thomson Reuters as an example of how some businesses are working with higher education in interesting new ways.
The Business of Education focuses on why it’s important for companies to build relationships with educators and universities in order to prepare students for success in the workplace. This type of collaboration benefits organizations later on as well when these students enter the workforce with the necessary skills to help companies compete in today’s marketplace.
Detailing the partnership between Thomson Reuters and Maverick Software, a company that recruits and places students in technology internships, the story highlighted the success both organizations have gained from the collaboration.
While Thomson Reuters receives the added value of hiring well-qualified technologists, Maverick aids companies in finding qualified IT candidates to fill critical positions while successfully placing 100 percent of its student employees into full-time positions upon graduation.
