Fredericktown, MO, November 14, 2018 – Cap America, Inc. hosted Southeast Missouri State University students participating in a job shadowing experience organized by the university’s President’s Leadership Academy. Twenty students participated in the experience, with degree plans ranging from international studies to finance.
Mark Gammon, COO and President, was excited to welcome the students. “The promotional products industry is a wonderful career field that many young students and future leaders are not aware of. By hosting this Business Learning Community, we are able to educate these future professionals about the industry we all know and love.”
Cap America’s Human Resources Director Sarah Burgin stated, “This opportunity is an excellent way for these students to learn about our industry as well as possible internships in the near future. Our company is growing and we look forward to welcoming young, new talent to our team and into our industry.”
The students first toured the facility, then broke into smaller groups to shadow different department leaders including human resources, finance, marketing, graphic design, overseas operations, production, and purchasing. Afterwards, the students met once again with company leadership for a Q and A session and to enjoy refreshments before returning to campus.
