On July 12, the Tampa Bay Bridge to Baccalaureate Program (TB-B2B) and SPC’s PITCH program visited Tech Data, one of the world’s largest technology distributors.

Students from the entire TB-B2B Alliance which includes SPC, Hillsborough Community College and State College of Florida were able to enjoy a two-hour information session and tour at Tech Data’s Corporate Office in Clearwater. Tech Data helps companies like HP, Apple, Cisco, Microsoft and hundreds of others bring their products to market and offer a wide range of technical and business support services.

The Tech Data information session included insight on internship, scholarship and employment opportunities available at this Fortune 88 company.  Several representatives of the company were available for questions including Talent Acquisition for the Sales and IT Departments, as well as the University Internship Recruiter. SPC TB-B2B student Diego Martinez shared that the event was very informative and helpful.

“I gained an insight into the culture of the company and the process of seeking employment with such a large technology driven company,” he said.

Our students walked away with potential internships, job opportunities and got to expand their network of STEM industry contacts.
