FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (June 23, 2015) – This summer, Broward College students are among the first to participate in Workday@College, a new initiative that trains students enrolled at higher education institutions with the leading-edge skills and real-world experience required to join the next generation of consultants that will support Workday customers. Workday is a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, and was recently named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For by Fortune magazine.
After completing training on the organization’s applications and business processes, students will join a Workday deployment partner or Broward College for two-months of practical fieldwork, providing them with an experience that closely resembles life as a global business consultant. Four Broward College students will intern with a Workday partner, and four other students will intern at Broward College, assisting with the College’s further implementation of Workday Human Capital Management (HCM), Workday Financial Management, and Workday Student.
“So far, the Workday@College training has been very educational,” said Fernando Soler, Broward College student. “The instructor is doing an incredible job — both in teaching about Workday as well as mentoring the group to prepare us for our first real-world career opportunity.”
“Workday@College brings together our community of employees, customers, and partners to equip students with the skills they need to enter and succeed in today’s job market,” said Bill Wilson, director of academic relations, Workday. “By training students on enterprise applications built for the future and not the past, we are able to give students a realistic path from education to occupation.”
