Set up for today’s Grove City College Career Fair
Michael Griffith, NWIRC, meets a student at the University of Pittsburgh Career Fair last week.

Now that college is back in session, Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) has hit the road to attend career fairs that have already begun. Today, it’s the Grove City College Career Fair with Kim Stebick and Michael Griffith, and last week they were at University of Pittsburgh and Penn State Behrend. These events provide the opportunity for NWIRC to meet one on one with students studying within the science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) disciplines and who are interested in a manufacturing internship at a regional company.

If your manufacturing company has been putting off a project, process  improvement, or other initiative, NWIRC can assist in matching your objectives with the ideal student’s skill-set and work interests. The STEM Manufacturing Internship program has helped companies accelerate technology development and address process and technology- related issues with  significant and quantifiable results, like increased productivity and decreased costs. We can also assess your needs and scope a project for you, to include developing a job description. The program saves your company time in the selection process, especially when you don’t have the resources to search for a candidate yourself, and also has an option for payroll management to reduce resources required for maintaining the intern as a short-term employee.
