Recent Grads Stay Flexible in Job Hunt

Teron Abdullah, a 2010 graduate of Kentucky State University, worked his way through college as a night stocker at a local Kroger store. After earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration, he hoped to work as a banker, but realized it wasn’t a good fit. So he entered the 25-week management-training program at Kroger, something he says fits his outgoing personality and penchant for problem solving. It isn’t what Abdullah expected, but he’s hopeful it will open the door to a variety of jobs with the grocery chain.
