AMETEK SMP a key sponsor for Penn State’s Engineering Career Week

Friday, January 18, 2019

AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP) will attend and sponsor Engineering Career Week, which will be held on January 22 through 24 at The Nittany Lion Inn, the premier hotel in State College, Pennsylvania, USA. The specialist powder, tube and strip manufacturer is sponsoring both the Networking Reception on January 22 and the Career Fair on January 23. Engineering Career Week is co-sponsored by the Penn State section of the Society of Women Engineers.

Representatives from each AMETEK SMP business unit, most of them Penn State graduates, will attend the Career Fair on January 23. They will meet attendees interested in pursuing a career in engineering and materials science and discuss the various opportunities currently available within the AMETEK SMP Group of businesses. Those opportunities currently include full-time positions and internships with co-ops planned for the future. As well as offering valuable networking and interview opportunities at the Career Week, the AMETEK SMP team will also provide branded giveaways and ‘spin it to win it’ prizes from their premier sponsor’s booth at Atrium 5.

Alexia Pursley, PHR, Human Resources Manager at AMETEK SMP says of the event, “We strongly believe in supporting events such as this and doing all we can to encourage talented University students to seriously pursue careers in engineering and material sciences. As a Group of companies, AMETEK SMP employs a large number of engineers - male, female and from a wide range of backgrounds - who work across many different roles and specialist areas. It can be an incredibly exciting career path to follow and we are looking forward immensely to talking to Pennsylvania State students at the Career Week events about the benefits that pursuing a career with us can provide.”
