Strand has posted employment opportunities to the MTU Career Services/Handshake website. They will be conducting virtual interviews on Friday, September 18th. Attached is a brochure with additional details. Strand is looking for graduating seniors (winter and spring grads) and undergrads interested in internships.

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:
