Members Only Event: Engineering Talent Attraction Opportunity

Many of our members are facing a similar challenge to identify and attract qualified engineering talent. The Aerospace Industry Association of Michigan is working on multiple ways to connect companies with reliable sources of engineering students.

Please join us on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at Michigan Technological University in Houghton for a day of prescheduled interviews. We have partnered with MTU to set aside a day exclusively for AIAM members to interview students who will be graduating in December 2019 or May 2020 and are seeking permanent employment. Others may be graduating at a later date and are pursuing internship opportunities.

Member companies can interview for either or both options above. Simply provide a list of the engineering discipline(s), job description(s), the number of students desired to interview in each and whether the positions will be for permanent employment or internships. MTU will work directly with company representatives to get set up in the system and arrange the scheduled interviews along with access to the student profile/resume in advance.

In addition to the scheduled interviews, brief tours will be given through the College of Engineering to meet faculty and provide an overview of their award-winning research facilities, and labs.

Click here if you would like to know more about the engineering programs offered at MTU and to determine whether your company would benefit from this event.

Suggested Attendees: Business owners/leadership teams, Engineering executives/hiring managers, Human Resource business partners.

A networking reception will take place the evening before on Monday, September 30 for company representatives to mingle and a chance to interact with students on an informal basis. Please follow the registration link below if you would like to sign up for participation in this exclusive event. Someone from our team will be in touch shortly to gather more information and assist in connecting you with the MTU staff.

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity. We look forward to seeing you at MTU!
