General Business Internship

Posted by officeprofessionalpc on January 13, 2011

The General Business program at Panola College is partnering with Holiday Inn Express to offer an internship in Spring 2011. The students chosen for the internship must have taken at least 15 hours in the General Business program and must have at least a 2.5 GPA. The internship allows students to work with a professional management team on actual business projects. Applications were accepted in the fall and Veronica Vicencio was chosen by Panola College faculty to intern this spring. If you would like to apply for an internship in Fall 2011, please contact Dwayne Ferguson at (903) 693-2066 or dferguson@panola.edu.

Personal Finance in Spring 2010

Posted by officeprofessionalpc on August 20, 2009

If you are a General Business major, you may know that BUSI 1307 – Personal Finance was moved in the Academic Course Guide Manual to the Home Economics area. I know, but that’s what happened. To print the new 2009-2010 catalog correctly, you will see an elective where BUSI 1307 used to be. Since that time, the decision has been reversed and BUSI 1307 is again being considered a business course. Anyway, for you General Business majors, choose BUSI 1307 instead of just any elective in the spring. See Dwayne Ferguson (903.693.2066 or dferguson@panola.edu) if you have questions.

Phi Beta Lambda Goes to UT Tyler

Phi Beta Lambda Visits UT Tyler

Phi Beta Lambda Visits UT Tyler

On Thursday, April 16, eleven members of the Panola College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda attended an etiquette workshop at the University of Texas at Tyler. The evening began with a “mocktail party” from 6:00-7:30 p.m. where Panola students mingled with UT Tyler students, faculty, and business leaders.  From 7:30-9:00 p.m., students were served a meal consisting of a baked chicken quarter on top of noodles in a red sauce, steamed vegetables, a roll, and chocolate covered ice cream–a disaster waiting to happen. Doris Sharp spoke to the group explaining the correct etiquette for a business dinner. Ms. Sharp demonstrated the responsibilities of a host, the correct way to enter a seat, which utencils to use during the meal, where to place your hands when you are not eating, how to signal your server when you are finished, and the difference between the American and Continental styles of dining. The students all agreed that the evening was a good source of professional development and that everyone should have an opportunity to attend this training.

Special thanks to Randy Graves and Student Services for providing transportation and funding for this event.
