Kohl's is building their brand on the University of Texas - El Paso campus!

During the second week of October leaders from the retailing giant, Kohl's Department Stores, made an effort to increase it's brand awareness on the University of Texas - El Paso (UTEP) campus. District Manager Al Collins and University Relations Manager Thomas Romero spent valuable time speaking to both undergraduate and graduate level students in classrooms of the College of Business. The presentations that were delivered ranged in topic from "Marketing for Success" to "Business Professionalism." The theme for all the classroom presentations was the future of the job market for college students. Both Al and Thomas offered their insight on the outlook and reassured the students that there would always be a place for them within Kohl's.

The visit concluded with a "Dress for Success" presentation and fashion show in which 6 students from the Business' College Council demonstrated the proper and acceptable attire for career fairs and interviewing. All clothing came from local Kohl's stores and the students were eager to see their peers in action! A recent UTEP graduate and current Kohl's Assistant Store Manager, Rachel Grantz, was also in attendance to speak to students about her success with the company. In total, there were close to 100 students in attendance. Gift cards were raffled off in order to help the students jump start their professional wardrobe and four lucky winners will be making their way into a Kohl's store very soon!

We look forward to future recruiting events at UTEP and Go Miners!
