"The Industrial Distribution program exposed me to different companies from all over the country that are constantly seeking to hire technical sales professionals. I was able to join my current employer via their internship program through Curricular Practical Training. The internship eventually lead to a job offer upon graduation for a full-time position in Kansas City. Today I work with numerous customers in the manufacturing industry and help them solve problems and be better at what they do through automation."
