Lincoln Electric, a major US company with more than 40 manufacturing locations and a worldwide sales presence held a full day information session with electronics students at PTI this week. The session featured representatives Seth Mason, Doug Leiby, James McClurg and Randy Boyer who spent the day discussing the state of the industry and opportunities for PTI graduates in the field.
Blake Reeder, one of the students who attended commented “I was quite impressed. I was also honored to be able to be introduced to some of the employees of Lincoln Electric, and that they took time out of their day to come talk to students of Pittsburgh Technical Institute. They are a company that I would recommend to any person looking for a career with advancement potential, not just a job.”
The presentation covered the history of the company, performance expectations for positions in the industry and positions they have available.
A number of students took part in the presentation and 15 students scheduled one on one meetings.
