Paper Transport, Inc. was named UW-Green Bay’s Recruitment Partner of the Year for 2020. The announcement was made by Career Services Director Linda Peacock-Landrum at the annual Professional Etiquette Program, recently. This year’s event was virtual.
“This annual event illustrates the exceptional commitment UW-Green Bay students and graduates receive from our community partners,” said Peacock-Landrum. “During my 24 years as director of Career Services at UW-Green Bay, I have been honored to work with over 150 organizations and their professionals in the Green Bay community and the Northeast Wisconsin region. It should not be a surprise to those in attendance, how this community has embraced collaboration with and support of UW-Green Bay.”
Each year, Career Services recognizes an organization for exceptional commitment and demonstrated comprehensive support of our mission. This year the recognition went to Paper Transport.
Paper Transport, Inc. joins past recipients honored since 2007 that include Imperial Supplies, Wipfli, Dental City, Baker Tilly, Associated Bank, ACUITY, Schneider, Humana, Schreiber Foods, Glen Tilot with Brown County Human Services, the Arthritis Foundation-Northeast District, CliftonLarsonAllen and WEC Energy Group.
“The first UW-Green Bay graduate to my knowledge to be employed at Paper Transport or PTI was in 2014 (Ken Feldkamp),” Peacock said. “This was the foundation of a partnership that grew annually over the next six years with the support, outreach and recruitment efforts of PTI. Their team members have served as Mock Interview Day volunteers, etiquette program attendees, panelists and featured program speakers. The organization has recruited each semester at our job & internship fairs and has attended countless events like this event today.
“…their program started with one intern, a UW-Green Bay student, and has grown each year, resulting in a total of 10 UW-Green Bay students interning to date, with the 11th student to begin her internship this spring. Seven of those 10 interns now are full-time employees. Overall, 28 UW-Green Bay alumni are currently employed at PTI.”
