There are many ways for an employer to find workers. Placing an ad in the Sunday paper used to be de rigueur; now companies are placing ads on MySpace, and Hot Jobs, and Craigslist, and … well, just about everywhere on the Internet.
ABB Inc. took a different
approach; they met
with students who have
graduated from universities across the country. The students were hand-picked
for ABB’s “Engineering Leaders for the Future” program, and ABB division
business professionals met with them at ABB’s Raleigh facility.
At the end of the program rotation, the graduates are sought by, and placed into, the divisions and countries that graduates identify as a high point of interest – and where ABB managers have identified the opportunities they want to place graduates into.
