Flatiron Goals for 2016 Include Increasing Recruiting
Broomfield, Colorado (April 29, 2016) – Across the company, Flatiron employees have been taking part in efforts to recruit college students, working to fill the pipeline of future leaders in the construction industry.
Students at recruiting events and career fairs in North America learned about who Flatiron is, the work it constructs, career progression and future work. Questions focused on career opportunities after graduation and what a day in the life of a Flatiron intern looks like.
The Central and Large Projects divisions revitalized their college recruiting efforts, attending career fairs at Texas A&M, University of Texas San Antonio and Colorado School of Mines. To date, this team has extended offers to new college graduates for the Harbor Bridge project in Corpus Christi, Texas, with more to come.
In Canada, teams attended a variety of career fairs in January and February, including at UBC in Vancouver, University of Calgary, Red River College in Winnipeg and McGill and Concordia in Montreal. In Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal, students were primarily from the Civil Engineering programs, while in Winnipeg, students from the Engineering Technology and Construction Management courses.
