NOVEMBER 14, 2002 -- Jacksonville State University alumna Elizabeth Webb, now Elizabeth Sutton, returned to campus recently as Regional Recruiting Supervisor for Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Based in Hapeville,Ga., she enthusiastically touts the benefits of Enterprise to interested students who approach her table at the Fall Career Expo held at Stephenson Hall on the JSU campus.

"They recognize hard work," she pitches. But the JSU alumna isn't just selling; she knows from experience. Just 54 weeks ago, she started with the company as a manager trainee.

Enterprise was among 30 companies that recruited on campus to discuss job opportunities, according to Janet White, director of Career Placement Services, which hosted the event entitled "New Opportunities, New Directions."

The theme was selected to reflect the variety of career opportunities open to non-teaching majors. Sutton was a criminal justice major at JSU.

JSU President Bill Meehan met with company represenatives at a continental breakfast earlier in the day, calling the expo "part of the educational process."

White was enthusiastic about the feedback she received from both recrtuiters and from students. "Healthsouth called our students "High Quality'," said White.

Anniston Army Depot hired such successful candidates last time that recruiters were sent to "get JSU grads."

Several of the companies will return to campus next week to conduct interviews. They include Anniston Cast Iron and Pipe Co., Sherwin Williams, Wells Fargo and Enterprise.
