Tech college students find careers before graduating
Two TCAT students say they are employed because the college helped them find jobs before they even graduated, part of a growing trend by educators and businesses to recruit students for high-demand technical jobs.
Kipp Compton said he is enrolled in a co-op that allows him to work at Network Technology Partners LLC in Smyrna. He checks in occasionally with Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Murfreesboro and updates them on his studies. His projected graduation date is next spring.
