This week we went to Randa Accessories in Midtown to hear from a variety of speakers about their jobs and the company overall. Randa makes mens accessories. They are known for ties and belts. for A few brands under the “Randa umbrella” are Kennith Cole, Levi’s, and Ryan Seacrest Collection. During their presentation we heard from a few Kent State alums who now work at the company. Many of the employees went through the company’s internship program and were then extended a job offer after their internship. It sounded like their internship is extremely hands on to provide the interns a real inside- look at the fashion industry.
The last two ladies showed us sample fabrics and talked about where their ties are produced. Then they gave each of us a tie to take home. Overall, the speakers were very knowledgable about their company and it was great to learn about the company!
