As reported in the Clayton Daily News, the Georgia career service office at Clayton State University has been around since 1982, although it’s gone through a couple of name changes over the years. It was originally the Counseling, Placement and Development Office. Next, it became the Job Placement and Cooperative Education Office. Eventually, the university settled on Career Services as the office’s designation. The office, located in room 250 of the Student Center, can match students with potential employers through services such as job boards, career fairs and the job Web site Georgiahire.com.
In addition to Allan Vigil Ford, some of the employers who work with Clayton State’s Office of Career Services at career fairs are the Central Intelligence Agency, AirTran Airways and FedEx Ground. The office also works with local employers, such as Clayton County Public Schools, the City of Forest Park, as well as Henry County employers, such as Georgia Crown Distributing Company, ProLogistix and the Stockbridge branch of SunTrust Bank.
“We help students develop strategies for their job search, like preparing resumes and improving their interviewing skills,” said Angelyn Hayes, CSU’s director of Career Services.
According to Brian Devine, division vice-president of ProLogistix. “The staffing industry was doing a poor job servicing the logistics industry with talented employees. At ProLogistix, we created the most comprehensive application process for logistics employees in the industry. We use our selection process to evaluate a candidate’s specific knowledge and experience, and we then match qualifications to the positions for which we are recruiting. We are delighted to work with CSU to develop the career path of tomorrow’s workforce.”
Unlike other staffing organizations, 100% of ProLogistix recruiting efforts are logistics centered. Branch staff is trained in logistics, and they understand the intricacies of the industry. Staff is not spending time testing and interviewing bookkeepers, data entry clerks, and construction workers. ProLogistix is fortunate to have built a reputation in the communities served as the “go-to” company when seeking a job in a warehouse or distribution center.
Brian Devine has more than ten year of staffing experience and is a management owner of the company and is the founder of the ProLogistix brand. Devine attended Towson State University majoring in Mass Communications. Devine began his career with PaineWebber Mortgage Finance where he held the position of Area Vice President for the Southeast Region. Devine began his staffing career as Vice President of Marketing for US Personnel. Since1995, Brian has led the ProLogistix Division and has established it as one of the most successful logistics placement businesses in North America. Devine was the 2000 winner of the EmployBridge Spirit Award for exemplary demonstration of company core values.
The combination of an exclusive focus on logistics, screening tools utilized in the application process, and the experience of branch staff makes ProLogistix the leading provider of logistics talent in the country.
