Alumni Spotlight

 Jordan Hinman
Class of 2014

"I was very fortunate to land a job at Play -Well TEKnologies after graduating from CCU.  Not many people get to say they work as a LEGO engineer for a living!  Many skills I had acquired from my communication degree and leadership minor at CCU were essential to my success in the job, and enabled me to move quickly up in the company into management.  Recently, our company was in a hiring crisis and I reached out to EMS for help.  It couldn't have been easier.  They helped us set up interviews with top notch students, and we were able to hire 5 highly qualified CCU students.   Our company has locations in 23 states, and hiring five employees that fast is unheard of. Even the CEO and Vice President of my company called to find out how we had found that many qualified candidates so quickly.  I have EMS to thank for that."
