The job fairs at Michigan Tech regularly bring in companies by the hundreds; many hundreds. This Fall’s fair was no exception, and Michigan Tech’s Corporate Partnerships group teamed up again with the Michigan Tech Enterprise Corporation Smart Zone (MTEC SmartZone) to host recruiters, staff, and faculty at the Keweenaw Brewing Company. It’s tough to find time to connect everyone in a social setting with the pressure of the job fair and a full week of interview slots to fill, but beer and pizza seem to always motivate. Over 200 joined together in downtown Houghton to talk shop, and casually mingle before the busyness of the rest of the week hit. The MTEC SmartZone is a generous and natural fit for hosting this event. Their mission is to accelerate and foster high-tech business growth – focusing specifically on driving Michigan’s innovation leadership and economic growth with sustainable opportunities for companies and their employees to prosper in incubators and offices in any of three sites in the local Houghton area. The SmartZone even started the next morning at 6:30 with a hosted breakfast and a tour of their business spaces.
