Corporate Representatives Looking to Connect with Student Organizations

2.      One-on-one engagement with recruiters that can give you access to internships/co-ops/full-time jobs.

3.      An opportunity to gain funds to support your organization and its programming.

Career Services has 43 corporate partners that have over $40,000 in the flexible spending accounts currently – funds that can be paid to your organization with a phone call.

If your organization is interested in this type of engagement with industry representatives, we are asking that you fill out this very short questionnaire.

This information will be passed on to companies so they will know how to engage Michigan Tech students while on campus. You can have your organization removed from this list at any time with a phone call to Steve Patchin, director of Career Services, at 906-487-2313 or email shpatchi@mtu.edu.

We need your information by Monday September 17, as companies recruiting this Fall have already been asking for this information.

Student News Briefs – August 31, 2018

Comedian Sammy Obeid – Saturday, September 1st at 10 pm in the Rozsa 
Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley — which is why he does comedy now — Obeid blends his education with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down hip, trending topics until you laugh your abs into a six-pack.

Comedian Sammy Obeid EDS pictureVoted “Fastest Rising Star” of 2014 in Campus Activities Magazine,Sammy has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, TBS’s Conan, and often likes to remind strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network. In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time and The New York Times. And then he took a nap.

Come join us on Saturday, September 1 at 10 pm in the Rozsa Center!

As always, this Late Night event is free and funded by the Student Activities Fee.Pete Lee picturePete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. Thanks to his highly rated Comedy Central Presents half hour special, Pete has packed venues at over 500 colleges and universities across the country. Pete has also been a standout on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a doctor on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. His hit YouTube series titled Pete Lee’s Internet Freak Show attracted the attention of television executives. He was quickly hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever. Pete is a rising star in the college market and on television, but he is also really fun to have dinner with at your town’s Applebee’s.

What is a Tech Expo?: Tech Expos are an opportunity to showcase all things Michigan Tech.  From academic departments to students organizations and enterprises, Tech Expos bring groups from all over campus to inform our participants about everything Michigan Tech has to offer.  The WIE and ESP programs are comprised of 150 incredibly bright and talented high school students from across the country. The ESP program is co-ed, and as the name implies, WIE is made up of all females.  Our Women in Computer Science (WICS) program will also be attending the ESP expo on July 25th.  This program is comprised of 20 high school females doing a week-long computer science curriculum.
Groups presenting at the Tech Expo will be assigned (1) 6-foot table to showcase information about their organization or department.  Students will be free to wander, visiting booths at their own pace.
This is a great way to recruit future Huskies.  About 10% of students currently at Michigan Tech are SYP alumni!
To register your group or department: fill out this registration form no later than Friday, July 13th.  More information will come the following week.
