Business/Student Feedback

“Our experience with the Workforce Development department at Kent State Trumbull has been exceptional. With their experience and assistance, we were able to critically evaluate and improve our hiring and promotion processes. In addition, they actively engaged key employees to design a maintenance training program that aligns to the specific needs of our company – in fact, we have implemented multiple, customized training programs to accommodate unique differences at our various facilities. The online course work is perfectly suited for diverse employees and schedules, is cost-effective, and enhances our on-the-job training.  We are confident that our partnership with Kent State will continue to reap significant benefits and results to our companies.”
