Conservice, Honored as a Top Job Creator, Recruits for a Day at Huntsman School

Conservice, a Logan-based firm recently recognized by Inc. Magazine as a prominent job creator, had its executives and recruiters devote an entire day to recruiting students at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.

Conservice is a utility management and billing company that employs more than 400 people, more than 70 of whom are students or graduates of the Huntsman School of Business. The company was featured in Inc.’s inaugural “Hire Power” awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past three years. Conservice created 203 new jobs between 2008 and 2011, ranking second in the state of Utah and fourth in the real estate industry.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for creating jobs and rebuilding the economy,” said CEO and Conservice founder Dave Jenkins in a Conservice press release. “Such rapid growth has allowed me to see many new employees enter Conservice and quickly become leaders within the company.” Mr. Jenkins, ’95, business management, ’99, human resource management, and several executives and employees of the company, spent the day in the George S. Eccles Business Building on Nov. 7 talking to students about job opportunities.

Dave Patel, assistant dean of the Huntsman School, said he is excited about Conservice’s interest in Huntsman students.

“They gave our students a chance to talk with not just the executives, but recent graduates who could tell them what it’s like to work for Conservice,” Mr. Patel said. “We are grateful David Jenkins and others from Conservice are willing to invest so much time in our students.”
