Airika McClafferty speaks with a student

The inaugural NUCOR week has featured a resume workshop, open house and meet and greet, social media takeover, and in-person on-campus interviews for students.

Reflecting on the week, Airika McClafferty '18, Montana Tech alumna and Metallurgist with NUCOR Steel Memphis, shared, "Our events with Baja Club and SWE have been a highlight of our week so far. These are great examples of our team’s strategy on Montana Tech’s campus- to build powerful partnerships that yield great results. The events themselves were great allowing our engineers to casually engage with both our student and faculty friends. Because in the end, we like to get to know our partners on a personal level."

Our team only sees that success continuing into the future. NUCOR’s need for talent necessitates our partnership with Montana Tech."

Over the years recruiting Montana Tech, we see these qualities as appealing and has led us to expand our recruiting efforts."
