Career Services partnered with the College of Business and Total Quality Logistics (TQL) to host a bus trip for more than 20 students to visit TQL’s headquarters in Cincinnati earlier this month. TQL is one of the largest freight brokerage firms in the nation.
Upon arrival at the headquarters, John Chafin, a Marshall alumnus who was a baseball student-athlete and who now works at TQL, took the students on a tour of the facility and the training room. Then they met with TQL Vice President Ken Oaks to learn the history and receive an overview of the company. The students were introduced to the company’s sales training logistics training models. Each student also was able to “job shadow” a member of the TQL team individually. Two other Marshall alumni, Brian Sharp and Emily Glassmeyer, were available for a question-and-answer session with the students. Both Sharp and Glassmeyer have 7 to 10 years of experience with the company.
The company’s college recruitment team gave resume and interview tips to the students. TQL has hired two interns from Marshall, and is looking for two additional interns to add to the team.
