School - Business Partnerships Reach New Level on Long Island
In an effort to facilitate networking opportunities for its alumni, the School - Business Partnerships of Long Island, Inc. recently launched a new system on its Web site that allows technology and engineering graduates who have participated in SBPLI’s regional robotics competition to contact sponsor companies.
By submitting contact information at www.sbpli-lifirst.org/alumniwelcome.php, alumni can opt to have their information reviewed by the human resources departments at these companies should internship or full-time positions become available. The Web site also provides company profiles and links to their Web sites. The goal is to encourage and provide direct communication with sponsor companies.
“This really completes SBPLI’s program and brings its mission full circle,” said Fred Breithut, founder and president of SBPLI. “By connecting graduates with Long Island’s technology companies, we can keep our bright engineering and technology students here on Long Island and advance local competition at the same time.”
Companies such as JPMorgan Chase, BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman, and Stony Brook University have all supported SBPLI’s mission and Long Island’s FIRST robotics competition, which takes place each March at Hofstra University.
