Jen headed to RIT in Rochester, New York for a recruiting trip. RIT has a Microelectronics Engineering degree program that educates/trains students specifically in the semiconductor field. This was the first time IM Flash had ever shown representation at a career fair at RIT so we had LOTS to tell the students about! The recruiters wanted to make sure they had "real engineers" on hand to explain to the students about what we do...so that is how Jen was able to get involved.
RIT held the career fair in the "field house". The place was HUGE:
I have to say I was quite impressed how organized the RIT staff was for this event. They had all the booths set up with our shipped boxes already at our tables. They had breakfast and lunch provided to us (dang good food too!). They had so many student volunteers walking around asking how they could help....one of them even went and found a box of tissues for one of the ladies from our group! Here was our booth:
Our sweet "goodies" to give away. When I was in college these were the things you always looked out for as a student...cool FREE stuff. Surprisingly the students didn't really take them. The people that took most of the freebies were professors and other employers!!
Here was our team for the RIT trip, left to right - Robin (recruiter), me (engineer), Angie (engineer), Nikki (recruiter) and Chad (engineer) who was taking the photo.
Nothing like a finding a spider as you are taking a shower.
