For Alumni of Vermont Schools
Whether you graduated just last spring or sometime in the last couple of decades, we invite you to consider bringing your talents home to Vermont.
You might be surprised by how much opportunity you find here. We are still a small community, but now that our baby boomers are laying down their tools and pencils in favor of fishing poles and skis, Rutland-area businesses are hungry for new leaders and skilled thinkers, builders, craftsmen, and entrepreneurs.
We’d love to talk to you about where Rutland is headed and how you might pursue your goals here with us – whether your next step is towards business ownership, family life, an MBA, or just more time outside breathing the pure Vermont air. Give us a call at 802-773-9147 or email us.
