Gold Rush TV Show Searching Michigan Tech for STEM Talent

The cable television show “Gold Rush” follows gold miners’ efforts to strike it big in the Klondike. On Wednesday (Feb. 20), a production team from the popular Discovery Channel show will be on the Michigan Tech campus during Spring Career Fair, hoping to hit pay dirt in its search for a STEM graduate.

An ad by the Discovery Channel indicates series star Parker Schnabel is looking for a “talented individual who could conduct an empirical analysis of Little Flake Mine (Dawson, Yukon Territory), to maximize productivity.”

Schnabel is seeking an individual with a “head for numbers” that can identify ways to improve his operation.

Adam Griffis, manager of on-campus recruiting, said a producer on the show, along with an assistant will arrive in Houghton Tuesday to participate in the semi-annual career fair in the SDC.

“They’ll be at the Career Fair with a TV to show episodes of “Gold Rush” and will conduct interviews immediately afterward. No mining experience is necessary and 2019 graduates are welcome to apply.

Michigan Tech is one of just three Universities the production crew will visit in the search for a STEM graduate. The crew will also pay a visit to Princeton and Cornell.

Those interested but unable to attend Career Fair may still apply for this exciting opportunity at Parker.Schnabel@raw.co.uk. The deadline for application is Sunday, Feb. 24.
