The Career Fair is just around the corner – Wednesday and Thursday of next week, Sept 23 & 24!  I hope you all have it marked on your calendar to attend (virtually), which means that you should be updating your resume and also researching companies!

Take a look at our Career Fair – Fall 2020 YouTube playlist!!   As we receive more videos they will be added to the playlist as well.  The companies have given us a variety of different types of videos – some of the videos are speaking directly to you as Michigan Tech CEE students, some are interviews with their employees as to what it’s like to work there and what their job responsibilities are and some are videos that highlight the company as a whole.

Job Postings: Procter & Gamble

Procter and Gamble will be participating in the virtual career fair in a few weeks. My team and I are based out of P&G’s manufacturing facility in Green Bay, WI where we manufacture some of P&G’s iconic paper brands in Bounty, Charmin, and Puffs. We are hiring for both full time and intern manufacturing engineering positions. Our new engineers commonly start their careers as either process engineers where they focus on building, maintaining, and improving the systems we use to operate the equipment in our facility while building capability in our workforce or as plant engineers where they focus on utilizing the engineering work processes to evaluate and install the capability in our facilities in order to meet our business goals.

I’m hoping you can share this information with the Environmental Engineering department. It would be great to have some of these students fill out our online application and complete the associated assessments, which take about 30 minutes. We will have a team at the virtual career fair later this month and will be doing interviews the following day. Students who take and pass the assessment before the career fair typically are scheduled for an interview (After GPA confirmation). The directions to apply are as follows:
