Pittsburgh, Pa., June 24, 2002 — Now available for employers is a collection of resumes profiling top honor students whose graphic communications educations were supported through scholarships from the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF). This valuable recruitment tool can help employers locate motivated and bright interns, part-time employees, or full-time employees.
Hire Education profiles 103 top honor students, their educational backgrounds, honors, career objectives, and work experiences. The students’ training and interests range from desktop design, prepress, and press operation to sales and production management. Many of the college freshmen through graduate have held industry positions while in school. An improved table of contents allows employers to easily scan for students according to school year completed, major, and state of residence.
“These students are among the most qualified applicants available for production or management jobs this year,” said Lawrence C. Warter, PGSF chairman and director of new business development for Fuji Photo Film USA, Inc. in Hanover Park, Illinois. “We are grateful to the industry for their generous funding and are proud to now offer students of such high-caliber back to the industry. I hope the industry will continue to reinvest in its future labor force.”
During the 2001-2002 academic year, PGSF granted $301,000 in scholarships to 226 students pursuing careers in graphic communications or printing management. Each year the PGSF Scholarship Committee reviews an average of 1,500 applicants and selects the top students who demonstrated outstanding leadership capability.
