Q&A with Blaise Alexander

WHAT QUALITIES OF PENN COLLEGE STUDENTS MAKE THEM STAND OUT FOR YOUR OPERATIONS?

Students from Penn College graduate not only with an education, but actual hands-on experience in their line of work. We are confident when hiring a Penn College graduate because we know that they are equipped with tools and experience to jump right into a position related to their field.

WHAT ASPECTS OF YOUR COMPANY ATTRACT OUR STUDENTS AND FUTURE STUDENTS TO JOIN YOUR OPERATION?

We continue to stay on the forefront of the industry with the most up-to-date equipment and typically have an outside-the-box approach to the automotive business, from the way we sell to the way we service vehicles. We have strong buying power and great relationships with all of our brands and are proud to have a family-like atmosphere that you will immediately notice.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU SHARE WITH HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS (AND PARENTS) WHO ARE CONSIDERING PENN COLLEGE?

Penn College is stellar in preparing their students with everything they need to know in securing an amazing job right out of college. In addition to the state-of-the-art equipment provided to every single major, Penn College students are prepared for job searching with incredible programs like mock interviews, etiquette dinners, resume builders, and so much more! Penn College performs an immense amount of research on what employers are looking for and the incredible demand for Penn College graduates based on their well-rounded education and experience speaks for itself.

Real World Ready

"Penn College was a great learning experience for me. The professors I had in class came with real-life work experience and knowledge of how the professional world works. This is a huge advantage for students! I am proud to be a 2009 graduate from Penn College and looking forward to broadening the relationship with future Penn College alumni and the Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships.”
