Local Tech Recruiters -- Hiring!

Last week, I made my way up to North Campus and visited the Ann Arbor Tech Fair, which was hosted by UM's Electrical Engineering and Computer Sceience Department and Eta Kappa Nu.

While at the fair, I visited with recruiters from ten local companies. Many of the recruiters had at least heard of SI, but some were very familiar with our school and were interested in learning more about how to get in touch with students. I've added all of the contacts to iTrack and you will be seeing some of these local organizations at SI next term. Please see below for some information on these local organiztaions. Note that most of them are not only Michigan based, but also have offices around the country or even the world. I encourage you to check their websites out and see if they have a position open that fits your skills and interests!
