STATE COLLEGE, PA – The Career Services Team at South Hills School of Business & Technology’s State College Main Campus hosted a local speaker as part of the “Taste of Success” Speaker Series. The series provides students with opportunities to learn from local employers who provide valuable career information, tips, and pointers to help the students start thinking about what comes after graduation.
