Michigan Technological University was happy to be invited to participate in the Automotive Talent Acquisition Management (ATAM18) held in Detroit, MI from February 26-28, 2018.
Many thought leaders from traditional automotive companies as well as mobility and new transportation methods were in attendance. As the industry evolves, the traditional “norms” from talent acquisition and recruitment are being challenged by startups, joint ventures, and skill requirements that didn’t even exist before!
Because Michigan Tech graduates work in a broad variety of industries that include automotive, we enjoyed being afforded the opportunity to share our efforts related to STEM-outreach. Our presentation specifically highlighted our Mind Trekkers and Summer Youth Programs and CareerFEST. Each of these programs is designed to provide real-world examples to the students of today to become the mobility employees of tomorrow.
