“We strive to hire the best and brightest students from public universities in the Midwest, including K-State,” said Jennifer Tomlinson, CFO and director of human resources for Tradebot.

“When the Department of Computing and Information Systems approached us about supporting a program that would attract top-level talent to the K-State CIS program, it was an easy decision. The program is very much in-line with our recruiting philosophy, and we are happy to be a sponsor.”
