Nashville, TN – Monday, September 9, 2013 – The Nashville Campus of National College recently awarded a Distinguished Community Employer plaque to Primeritus Financial Services, Inc., a financial management company providing service in areas of automotive finance collections, skip tracing, recovery and remarketing operations. Primeritus Financial Services, Inc., has been instrumental in hiring current students and graduates and has agreed to be an externship site for students enrolled in the campus’s accounting program, so that they can get practical experience in a real financial setting.
Natasha Dowell, human resources director for Primeritus explained, “We are seeking a higher caliber of account representatives trained in accounting, customer service and with a strong work ethic.” Dowell continued, “Since National has teamed up with Primeritus, doors have opened for the accounting students of the middle Tennessee campuses—Madison and Nashville—to complete externship hours in a ‘real-world’ financial setting.” Dowell said that the chances of National students finding jobs through Primeritus are greater if they have had a positive experience as an extern and a recommendation from Terri McCall, career center director.
National graduate Rachel Gonzales exclaims, “I love my job! Everything I learned in the accounting classes at National College is what I’m doing on a daily basis. This was a great career choice for me. I am happy that Mrs. McCall pushed and challenged me to step out of my comfort zone. I would not have this job if she would not have cheered for me on the sidelines.” Gonzales was hired by Primeritus as a collections representative in February 2013 and was promoted to accounts receivable clerk in May, preceding the commencement ceremony.
“This connection has blossomed into a good match for the college, the students, and Primeritus,” said Chuck Tapp, CEO of Primeritus. “We are looking forward to a growth period in the months and years ahead and are excited to work with National College in helping us meet our recruiting needs.”
