Hired before graduation: Karen Kakou

December 22, 2017

Opportunities for hands-on experience, internships, research and more give UW-Platteville students an advantage when searching for their first job, oftentimes finding one before they graduate. See more from one of our many Pioneers who were hired before graduation.

Karen Kakou, a Côte d’lvoire (Ivory Coast), West Africa native, was determined to travel to the United States to pursue a higher education. Nearly eight years later, despite a language barrier, financial troubles and political conflicts back home, Kakou graduated with a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering and was hired before graduation.
