Partnership Spotlight: TCC

Tidewater Community College

InMotion Hosting is lucky to be able to partner with some great organizations in the community. Our Partnership Spotlight series will serve to highlight these organizations and give them credit for all they do. In our second installment we are highlighting our relationship with the largest provider of higher education in Hampton Roads, TCC! 

 

TCC has been serving the Hampton Roads community for 50 years, helping students achieve their individual goals. They offer various Computer Science and IT programs such as Computer Science, Cyber Security, Database Specialist, and more to choose from!


Below is a statement from our partner regarding the relationship we’ve built over the years.

“The partnership between Tidewater Community College and InMotion Hosting has been valuable to our students and alumni. TCC’s Career Services department and the InMotion recruiting team have collaborated for more than 10 years. Thanks to InMotion Hosting, many TCC students and graduates have been able to earn employment in areas that include Hospitality, Technical Support and Customer Service. InMotion Hosting regularly recruits from our career fairs and hiring events and provides excellent feedback to us about the applicants they’ve received.
