You’ve Heard of Speed Dating - Now There’s Speed Interviewing!
On February 5, MCAM hosted the 2nd annual Speed Interviewing Session at Torque Brewery.
MCAM holds this event yearly for the Engineering Faculty of Manitoba and the objective is to provide the students the opportunity to enhance their communication skills and plant some seeds to form meaningful relationships with stakeholders in the Mechanical Contracting and Engineering Industry.
Several students from the Student Chapter sat down for 10 minute intervals to get grilled by the decision makers who are also members and associates of MCAM. The conversation between student and employer were focused on elaborating what was stated on each of their resumes. And when asked about their experience as a hiring manager, Bruce McWhirter of AB Mechanical stated “Last year I was able to hire a 5th year engineering student. I cannot say enough of the great work ethic that the student came to work with everyday. His duties consisted of everything from digging trenches, helping with the installation of water, drainage and vent lines, operating threading equipment and helped in the programming of a plasma cutter, I appreciate this opportunity all around, thanks MCAM.”
Big thanks goes out to these companies who’s representatives participated in this event!
