Job Postings: Hardman Consrtuction (On campus visit)

Hardman Construction, based in Ludington, MI, is planning a visit next week (21st for an info session and interviews the 22nd) to get some applicants for their summer intern program. Do any of you have a sense of how many 2nd, 3rd, 4th, (& 5th) year students might still be looking for a construction internship? I can put together a spiel to send to your list serves if you wouldn’t mind helping me drum up some interest.
The company is really down to earth, with 4 Tech grads as owners/managers. They’ve been on campus before, and are more interested in a candidate’s work ethic and ability to learn than they are about GPAs — they actually told me last time that they’d prefer not to hire anyone smarter than themselves!
I’ve attached their flyer on the opportunities this summer. They’re ready to offer at least 2 MTU students jobs for the summer while they’re here.

Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP)

Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) Applications Due March 28

The Pavlis Honors College reminds faculty that URIP 2018-19 applications are due March 28.

There are two tracks for faculty mentors to consider:

  • Faculty in Health-Related Fields are invited to identify an undergraduate research intern with any amount of prior experience – Portage Health Foundation Scholars
  • Faculty in any discipline are invited to identify an undergraduate intern that is relatively new to research or scholarship (less than 6 months) – Pavlis Young Investigators

The internship program is open to any undergraduate student on campus. Faculty are welcome to apply with students with whom they are already working.

The program consists of a 20-week internship (mid-September through mid-March) as well as professional development activities centered on academic research and scholarship.

The Pavlis Honors College will provide $800 in funding for the student intern, with the expectation that faculty will provide matching funds to be dispensed concurrently, resulting in a total of $1600 (or $10/hr for 8 hours per week for a period of 20 weeks).

Faculty may make use of research funds, IRAD, startup packages, or consult their chairs, deans or center/institute management to identify the source of their match.

Details regarding the Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) application process can be found here.

The Undergraduate Research Internship Program is made possible by generous donations from the Portage Health Foundation and with the support of the Pavlis Honors College.
