Employer Testimonials

  • “BlueWork has been a wonderful find for our local insurance agency. We have been able to lean on the database to find dedicated students to work on projects that we do not have the capacity to complete ourselves. The website itself is very user friendly in setting up a profile to find the students that best fit our needs. The students we have hired have done a wonderful job balancing their academic commitments, while providing us with fresh perspectives and innovative ideas that enhanced our project’s scope and execution.”
    • Kali DeWitt Rodgers | Partner, DeWitt Insurance Group

  • “It has been really positive overall, the students presented themselves in a very professional manner, the work moved along, people kept us on task, and the deliverables were high-quality, and the entire experience was good for both projects.”
    • Greg Stanley | President, Accelerant Consultants

  • “Our medical practice began working with two Butler students as part of their BlueWork program in October of 2023.  We had been exploring hiring an agency to help us with our social media marketing, but learned of the Butler program and decided to give it a try.  Not only has this program, and these students, saved our practice a lot of money for what could have been spent on a private agency, but has helped us tremendously with reviving our presence on a variety of social media platforms.  These students have brought fresh ideas, graphics, copywriting and many other skills to the table.  We meet weekly with them by video to discuss new ideas and needs for our social media postings.  They have been punctual, responsible, creative and fun to work with.  I think they have enjoyed the experience and opportunity as well.  It’s a win-win for all involved and would highly recommend.”
