Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Symmetry Corporation, a certified SAP® Cloud, hosting partner and value-added reseller, partners with the La Macchia Entrepreneur Internship Program established for UW-Milwaukee Lubar School of Business graduate and undergraduate students. Together, the Lubar School of Business and local business participants, like Symmetry, provide invaluable insight into true business ownership through the La Macchia Internship Program. Qualifying participants gain exposure and hands-on experience to total enterprise operations, from budgeting to business development.
“Our interns receive the rare opportunity to step outside the classroom doors and walk in the shoes of respected local business leaders,” explains Greg Krejci, Director of Career Services for the Lubar School of Business at UW-Milwaukee. “It adds up to more than just academic credit. In fact, over the years, these internship experiences have led to over 75 percent fulltime placements. We have a comprehensive process that matches the candidates’ qualifications, study and preferences with the right business of choice, whether it be marketing focused, finance driven or IT.”
“Symmetry has remained a constant valued resource for our students. The company takes pride in helping develop its surrounding community and that effort is reflected through its participation in the La Macchia Program. Each intern has been able to work side-by-side with Symmetry’s President, Dan Wilhelms, and his colleagues to experience real life business challenges and development of strategies to address them and foster business growth. We always hear great feedback from our students who get to work with the firm.”
“Symmetry has an enthusiastic commitment to the La Macchia Program,” adds Dan Wilhelms, Symmetry President. “Our mission is to mentor and develop the young professionals entering the job force, and share our experiences in the process. We look forward to working with La Macchia in the future. Each intern we’ve had the opportunity to work with has presented contributive talents and several have joined our company post graduation, as fulltime employees.”
