Tech Titans

The DOMBA student chapter recently organized a trip to the Hiring expo by Tech Titans at Dallas on November 11th 2015. The event was attended by 11 members, where they met the major hiring companies such as Bank of America, Argo Consulting, P3 (Germany) Consulting, Raytheon, and more. A total of 30 companies were present at the event. The purpose of this trip was to help members learn and understand what skills are highly needed by the industries, and line up relevant courses in their study plans earlier before graduation.
Here is what the members have to say about their experience -

Ms. Dolly Yadav
First year Graduate Student - Business Analytics

For several of us, a general idea about hiring expo is a place for obtaining a job; but, the reality is way beyond this general thought. Which, I personally experienced in yesterday’s event of hiring expo. For students like us these career fair and hiring expos have an important meaning. These events give us an opportunity to know the real job market requirements.

In tech-titan hiring expo, we met many companies and understood the role of a business analyst in real work scenario. We are clear about what all technical and functional skills are required to deliver the best result as an analyst. What we need to improve to stand out of crowd. All of the team members made a positive impression on the companies.

I had a personal experience with managing director of Coal-Fire, as soon as I extended my hand to greet him; in that moment he realized that I was a student attending Texas A&M Commerce University. He said that he was very impressed by the standards that we carried and the way we approach ourselves. I am very thankful to Ms. Lacey Henderson for preparing us well in advance and Dr. Han to give us motivation and positive approach.

A special Thanks to Dr. Myers, to provide us this platform and support in every way possible.

Mr. Jose Ballesteros
First year Graduate Student - Business Analytics

It was a great experience talking to many of the exhibitors. It gave me an idea of what skills I need to start learning before I graduate. Our presence as students also showed that we are trying to plan ahead and stay up to date to what is needed in the industry. I applaud everyone that was involved in organizing and promoting this event.
