BLACK AND BLUE

Written and directed by Sean Lewis

Starring Barrington Vaxter, Alyssa Perry, Ryan West and Tierra Plowden

Ten years ago Charlie was a cop on a beat and Marcus was a suspect in the Fuller Park section of Chicago. Ten years since their paths crossed, their lives have gone in different directions but questions remain: was it abuse? Brutality? Or solid police work? Charlie’s sister Charlotte is looking into the case for herself this time, and this particular evening she’s decided to bring Marcus home with her to really figure out what is what.

Are you curious about what you need outside of a great education and advanced technical skills to land the best job? Do you want ideas about how to make your resume and interview stand out? Do you wonder if your social media presence will influence hiring and promotion opportunities?

Scott Fowler, manager of Global Occupational Safety at Deere & Company, will provide insight into these questions and more. He will describe the expectations that leading companies like Deere have of future employees. He will also describe how a traditional organization like Deere is responding to the expectations of employees in this ever-competitive environment to attract the best talent.

It’s never too early to make “after graduation plans,” so join us for lunch and bring your questions to this interactive seminar.
