Employment “Farm Team” – 1998

For a decade iPOV relied on work by part-time Auburn students. They so consistently exceeded expectations that most ended up in great jobs after graduation. Many of them credited the opportunities and mentoring they received at iPOV. From this experience, I evangelized for the concept that universities could support an ecosystem of “farm team” companies for large employers. No one seemed interested, but I am still convinced it is an excellent and practical idea.
