Materials Science and Engineering Students for Metallurgy Position in Madison Heights

My name is Tobi and I am the Human Resources Generalist at Commercial Steel Treating Corporation, a heat treating facility located in Madison Heights, MI. I am writing to request the opportunity to reach out to your graduating or post-graduate students regarding an open Metallurgy Manager position we have at CSTC.

We are hopeful that the students may be interested in this role. I understand that MTU is not located in the Metro Detroit Area, but I am curious if there may be an opportunity to posting this position to current students who aren’t local to Houghton or graduate students who may have left the area.

I appreciate your time and assistance in advance.

Kind regards,

Tobi Cantle-Wilson
