Keene, N.H.–C&S Wholesale Grocers in Keene, N.H., is partnering with Franklin Pierce University to offer a new pathway to experiential learning, paid internships, and opportunities for full-time employment for students with their new four-year C&S Scholars Program.
As part of the new C&C Scholars initiative, C&S is collaborating with Franklin Pierce University to help prepare students for successful careers, beginning with their first day on campus. The grocery supply giant will gain a local talent pipeline and an opportunity to employ new graduates with skills in accounting, marketing, finance, and other academic disciplines. The program is focused on helping students make professional connections, gain hands-on skills, and obtain experience using cutting edge technology solutions.
While many colleges and universities wait until junior or even senior year to help students develop career planning, Franklin Pierce University has gained national recognition for working with students during their first year on campus to integrate career exploration options into their college experience. This is the latest initiative to help students make new connections beyond campus that will tap into the best practices approach of active educational engagement.
“As we continue to cultivate national, regional, and local connections that help our students link classroom learning with career opportunities, this new partnership is a very promising and forward-looking one,” said Dr. Kim Mooney, President of Franklin Pierce University. “C&S Wholesale Grocers is the largest grocery supply company in the United States, and is recognized as the industry leader in supply chain innovation,” she added.
All students will be exposed to opportunities in this program from their freshman through their senior year–and will be able to apply for paid internships and co-operatives (co-ops) to enhance their experiential learning. Students who pursue a co-operative with C&S during their senior year will be given consideration for full-time employment post-graduation.
The Franklin Pierce University/C&S Scholars Program will allow students to pursue interesting, challenging, and meaningful work while contributing to the success of one of the ten largest privately held companies in the U.S. For more information: http://campus.weselectthebest.com/
