2014 Steel Days

Q: How do you encourage students to pursue careers in the iron and steel industry?

A: Students tell us they want to know what it looks like to work for you, so we want to give you the opportunity to “show and tell” them at this informal, interactive event in the heart of campus. We encourage you to bring any kind of visual or hands-on presentations to showcase your dynamic industry and what working in the steel industry looks like.

Scheduled for the week before the Career Fair, it’ll be a great time to meet students who are getting geared up for their job search.  We’ve got two event opportunities planned, and of course, we’ll get students’ attention with free food!

Mark your calendar for September 24, 2014 and contact Career Services for details on how your company can participate.
