College Students in Memphis Prepare for the Business World

During hard economic times like these, everyone can use whatever help they can get. Whether it’s tips and tricks from the pros, a little networking and elbow-rubbing with bigwigs, or simply educational courses and seminars, people all over the country are embracing different job trainings and development opportunities.

In Memphis, college students have been able to do just that at the Black Executive Exhange Program. The program, created to instruct students on the nuances of networking and marketing themselves to local and national businesses, was held on the campus of LeMoyne-Owen College last Wednesday.
