The students at Washtenaw Community College appear to know how to make an impression.
Over the past three years, Quicken Loans has hired nearly 200 WCC students in fulltime, internship and contract positions.
The Detroit company’s hirings show that WCC’s strategic plan to ensure that its students get employed – sometimes even before graduation – is working in overdrive.
Since 2012, Quicken Loans has been a key partner with Intentionally Growing New Information Technology Employees In Michigan (IGNITE) – an accelerated program at WCC that trains students to be able to land high-demand technology jobs.
“Quicken Loans has been a tremendous partner to us,” said Barbara Hauswirth, WCC’s Placement and Internship Coordinator. “I can’t say enough for their participation not only with the IGNITE program, but in general with wanting to recruit our students and take a more active role. We couldn’t ask for better partners.”
