Jonathon Lawniczaka - District Recruiter, Sherwin Williams
The Sherwin-Williams Company finds SUNY Oswego students are exceptionally well prepared for the job search and interview process. Undoubtedly, Career Services plays a significant and valuable role in our search for candidates who fit the Sherwin Williams' culture and has led to a long standing, productive relationship. In addition to career fairs and on-campus interviews, we often participate in classroom presentations, resume reviews and mock interviews; events held to improve the skills of students and expose them to an employer's point of view. Year after year, we definitely get a return on our investment, as we continue to bring students on board for summer internships and full-time opportunities. Overall, we find the students to have vested interest in their school, many of which are heavily involved in campus-life, or on-campus activities. Sherwin-Williams looks for students with leadership experience and a great work-ethic, and we consistently find that at SUNY Oswego. Certainly, the professors have a vested interest in the students as well, as they have been exposed to many facets of the business world through their academics and are excited to begin their careers. SUNY Oswego students absolutely set the bar in experience, preparation and drive to succeed.

"We find the new hires from SUNY Oswego have a great understanding of the working world and make an easy transition into public accounting. We find the accounting faculty to be top notch and have prepared the students for applying all the concepts they learned to the real world. The school has had a five-year program in place long before the new requirement took place and it shows. The accounting faculty take such a personal interest in their students and want them to succeed in the accounting profession."
