Mike Pfeiffer, vice president of technology for American Solutions for Business (PPAI 101656), recently spoke to students at Minnewaska Area High School’s Career Day. The school is located near Glenwood, Minnesota, where the distributor is headquartered, and many of its students are children of employees, who may choose to pursue summer internships or future employment at the company.

Much of Pfeiffer’s presentation and conversation with the students centered around the technology field on a large scale and local level so that they could understand their options in relation to their own career goals and paths. His presentation covered a lot of ground, including technology’s evolution into nearly every career field, why agricultural technology and cyber security are growing so quickly and the importance of high-speed bandwidth as a utility that can build communities. He also encouraged students not to specialize too much in high school and to explore several fields, to consider local technical and community colleges for their education and to commit to life-long learning.
