Quincy University/Dot Foods Partnership

 

The Quincy University/Dot Foods Partnership offers QU students exceptional career opportunities with one of the nation’s largest and most respected privately held firms. Selected undergraduate QU students will have the opportunity to explore promising future careers with Dot Foods through a structured, yet flexible, fellowship. This partnership between QU and Dot Foods offers students the opportunity to participate in Dot Foods’ mission and ongoing growth while furthering their studies at QU.

About Fellowship

Participating students can choose between an array of professional possibilities including accounting, information technology, sales and marketing, warehouse and transportation operations, and more. The Company is searching for dedicated individuals that can be mentored into becoming productive members of the Dot Foods family and the service industry, in general.

Program Components

Accepted applicants will begin the program in the Spring semester of their freshman year with a series of five full-day seminars, which will continue through the end of their sophomore year, totaling 15 seminars. During their junior year, students will participate in a semester-long Internship, equivalent to three credit hours and to be completed during one full day per week, as well as monthly phone consultations with their Dot Foods mentor during the non-internship semester. The following summer, students will participate in a second Internship; this internship completes the Dot Fellowship program. Internships include the opportunity for Project Development.

In addition to these components, students will have the optional opportunity to participate in further Summer Employment or Internships during their first two summers at QU. Furthermore, students who qualify will have the option of participating in a Senior Year Internship during one semester, equivalent to six credit hours and to be completed during two full days per week, and monthly phone consultations with their Dot Foods mentor during the alternate semester.

Once the Fellowship is complete, each participant will receive a performance review by Dot Foods. The results of these assessments will factor into students’ selection for Priority Job Placement or other employment opportunities. In addition, students who complete this program and become employees of Dot Foods are eligible for graduate studies funding.

Eligibility

Freshman students from all majors are encouraged to apply for this opportunity. Special consideration will be given to applicants with majors relating to Dot Foods careers. Applicants with a 3.0 or above GPA and an ACT score of 20 or above will also be considered.
