"In my visits to the BU careers offce, I always found THE BLACK COLLEGIAN stacked on a table in the entranceway. I would always get the latest issue, go through it cover to cover, and thumb through places I'd never heard of like Milwaukee, Wis., and employers like Northwestern Mutual. The ads featured people who looked like me, and included little captions about their background and responsibilities, which interested me greatly. I would actually create an index of the employers I wanted to contact, jot down the addresses, and eventually type a letter to the human resources contact they listed. Northwestern Mutual was one of those employers; they quickly set up an interview, few me out to Milwaukee, and offered me an entry position in what was their new information technology area. The rest, for me, is pretty much history. "That's literally how I found out about Milwaukee, Northwestern Mutual, and what was to become my path to a reward- ing career in IT." - Thomas Pina Windsor, Director, Information Services, Miller Brewing Company "…As a New Year's present to some of my college friends, I decided to give them a one-year subscription to your great magazine. I was frst introduced to your magazine through the Career Placement Center at my school, Michigan State Uni- versity. MSU subscribes to your magazine and provides free copies for its students. However, some of my friends don't at- tend MSU, but another local school. So, I decided to introduce them to your great magazine. I have always loved your magazine. THE BLACK COLLEGIAN Magazine provides useful and essential information for today's Black student." - Jason Honeycutt, Michigan State University "'We're Proud Of Our Family.' This was the theme the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies utilized to advertise career opportunities in thirteen major profes- sional areas for Black students in the JOBS Issue of THE BLACK COLLEGIAN Magazine. "The response from the interested students has far exceeded our expecta- tions and the costs were minimal when shared by our operating companies. We frmly recommend and support THE THE BLACK COLLEGIAN Magazine as a viable recruiting source for qualifed, entry-level Black professionals." - Carol C. Woods, Johnson & Johnson "My thanks, therefore, for this timely article which greatly assisted me in preparation for recruiting Black students to the graduate engineering program at Stanford." - Harold K. Boyd, Associate Dean of Student Afairs, Stanford University "NASA Lewis Research Center has adver- tised twice in THE BLACK COLLEGIAN Magazine. Through our frst advertise- ment, we hired two Black mathematicians. One was a female who had a 3.4 GPA from Spelman College and the other was a male from SUNY-Binghamton with nearly all A's. From our second advertisement, a Black freshman electrical engineering student from Southern University applied for a summer job. During his frst semes- ter he received fve B's out of six courses. The Center is appreciative of quality stu- dents from a quality magazine and I will share that viewpoint with others." - Judy Montfort, Resource Development Specialist, NASA— Lewis Research Center u
