Job Posting: Harmon, Inc (Career Fair)

 

I graduated from Michigan Tech in Fall 2014 from the Civil Engineering department and I am up for the Career Fair with my company Harmon Inc. We are in the Curtain Wall and Glazing Industry which is basically the glass on skyscrapers and large buildings.

We are looking for 6 Contract Project Management Interns (Locations: Atlanta and/or Orlando, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Seattle )1 Engineering Intern (Location: Minneapolis) 1 Manufacturing intern (Location: Baltimore).  If you relocate for the internship, we will provide housing.

I have attached a job description of the manufacturing, engineering, and project management internships along with an “Internship Info” flyer. Additionally, I have attached a “Harmon Internship Experiences” document that is an excerpt from our monthly HarmonLinc that is sent out company wide.

Four out of the nine interns we had this summer were from Michigan Tech.

We are looking for the following majors:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Structural Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Construction Management
  • Construction Engineering
  • Or Related Focus/Majors

We are looking for candidates who are good communicators, decisions makers, problem solvers, organized, and detail-oriented.  Our preferred minimum GPA requirement for all positions is 3.0.

I personally did 3 internships as a project management intern while attending Michigan Tech with Harmon Inc. working in Baltimore, Dallas, and Cincinnati. I have now been working full time for Harmon for almost 3 years out of the Baltimore office.

See below for links to some projects that I have recently worked on and am currently working on:
