KALAMAZOO -- A variety of job opportunities for engineers will be showcased on Western Michigan University's Parkview Campus during the eighth annual Engineering Opportunity Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, in the new engineering and applied sciences facility, located at 4601 Campus Drive near the intersection of Parkview Avenue and Drake Road.

The event is open to the public as well as WMU students alumni and faculty. It will allow those attending to network with employers, discuss career opportunities and learn about current industry needs. About 45 companies from across Southwest Michigan, the state and nation will be on hand to promote their organizations and recruit WMU students and alumni for internships and full-time, part-time and co-op positions. Employers will conduct informal interviews at the event for WMU candidates only, and some will be scheduling follow-up interviews.

The day is being sponsored by WMU's Career and Student Employment Services and College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. No pre-registration is required. Job-seekers who attend should dress in business or business-casual attire and bring a supply of resumes to distribute to employers.
