Capstone Group Visits Ricker’s Corporate Headquarters

Published: Feb 26, 2014

A Communication Studies Capstone Class from Taylor University recently visited Ricker Oil Corporate headquarters in Anderson, Ind., for a day of insight, interviews and professional learning.

The group met with Ricker’s President and CEO Quinn Ricker and Ricker’s executive Karen Mitchener for discussions and learning focused on resume development and professional behaviors. They also participated in one-on-one mock interviews with Ricker, Mitchener and members of the Human Resource executive team and toured the company’s headquarters.

According to Dr. Linda Manganello, Assistant Professor of Communication at Taylor, the opportunity to learn and interact with corporate professionals was of great benefit.

“It was a great experience to interact with such intentional professionals who dedicated their time to Taylor students with the purpose of developing and refining effective professional skills,” said Manganello. “These are the kinds of hands-on experiences that prove invaluable to our students.”
