A representative from CSX Transportation, a leader in the transportation industry, is coming to Marshall University on Thursday to connect students with career opportunities.

Jermaine Swafford, Marshall alum and all-American linebacker for the Thundering Herd football team from 1992-1996, will speak to students Thursday at 8 p.m. in room BE5 of the Memorial Student Center about management opportunities with CSX.

Debby Stoler, assistant director of development and outreach at the Marshall Career Services Center, said students from all majors are encouraged to attend.

“These are jobs for college grads,” Stoler said. “These are jobs that require bachelor’s degrees. They have several different areas of management at CSX and they have several different training programs depending on the area. They of course have transportation, which could be a variety of majors.”

Stoler said Swafford has an education degree, and has worked his way up to a management position with CSX.  He will be inducted in the 2012 class of the Marshall Athletics Hall of Fame Friday at 7 p.m. in the Don Morris Room of the Memorial Student Center.

Stoler said Swafford and another CSX representative, who will be joining in via video conference, will be available for questions after the information session.
