Discover Financial Services Employs Northern Illinois University Students On-Campus

Discover Financial Services is employing Northern Illinois University undergraduate students on-campus.

Reported by Campus Technology, Discover has hired 36 students in Computer Science and Information Systems-related programs to work on mobile software and web applications on campus.

Discover views this as a high-potential feeder group to find new star employees, and NIU appreciates the real-world experience their students are able to get.

The takeaway? This type of corporate collaboration is exactly what students are looking for. So how can our institutions develop strong relationships with local employers and partner in similar win-win ways?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
