ePLU connecting students with jobs


Student founders of ePLU pose with the Bill Koenig (front row, center), CEO of Cantametrix. With him are from left, Chris Allsup ’03, Arne Asphjell ’00, Uli Heitz ’02, Karl Lund ’00 and Justin Foster ’02.

Cutting-edge online music search company Cantametrix found important data—and even more important employees— through PLU’s School of Business and ePLU, the new electronic commerce resource center.

“They are really bright, exciting individuals, and it was a stimulating environment,” Cantametrix CEO Bill Koenig said. “They’re really well-prepared for going out and working in the marketplace. Our experience is certainly proof that PLU is producing some great graduates.”

ePLU offers distinct benefits for students, such as a résumé profile, that links them to potential employers, and to faculty, who can incorporate the center into their curriculum. Businesses and organizations that get involved take away research and reports created by students.
