STONY BROOK, NY, October 31, 2011 – Hiring Stony Brook University students is essential for one local business owner, who this semester alone has added five more to a staff that consists of more than 25 Stony Brook students and alumni. Eduware, a Smithtown-based educational software company, recruits SBU students through the Stony Brook University Career Center for a variety of roles, including, computer programming, graphic design, office management, customer support, social media advertising and more. Owner William Stevens actually relocated his business from Huntington to Smithtown three years ago to accommodate employees traveling from the University.
Stevens, a retired public school teacher, has hired more than 50 students and alumni in the past three years and hundreds since he began recruiting through the Career Center in 2000. Today, his staff consists of 26 SBU students, many of whom come from the Computer Science Department; some are also pursuing degrees in business, sociology or one of the sciences, and some are alumni.
