Huskies@Work

Michigan Tech’s corporate chapter program creates: 

Enhanced Networking Opportunities:

Employees network, learn, socialize, and stay connected with Tech. Events focus on career development, volunteering, and timely industry topics. Activities include department tours, coffee breaks, lunches (pasties and pickled eggs anyone?), and after-work socials.

Increased Employee Engagement:

Connecting with fellow alumni cultivates cross-team and interdisciplinary relationships helps Huskies stay in touch and open new lines of communication.

Strengthened Talent Pipeline:

An active group of Tech alumni within the organization provides a valuable internal resource for student interns, enhancing their experience and influencing their perspective of the organization as a destination workplace. A strong network can lead to an increase of internal referrals and recruits.

Enriched Volunteer Opportunities:

Corporate alumni networks enhance opportunities for employees to connect with our talented students through career panels, advising senior design or Enterprise teams, judging Design Expo projects, conduct mock interviews, and resume reviews.

Corporations and their Husky employees help Michigan Tech and our students in a number of ways including as Career Services Partners, participation in the Corporate Matching Gift Competition, through a Co-op/Internship Program, and as supporters/advisors for student projects and Enterprise teams.
