Today, March 5, Lampin attended the 2nd Annual Career Fair at the Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational Technical High School (BVT). The Career Fair ran from 8:30 a.m. to noon, during which time Lampin President Bill DiBenedetto and Quality Engineer Linda White spoke with students about potential career opportunities in the manufacturing industry.
“The world of manufacturing has evolved dramatically over the last decade,” said DiBenedetto, “and it will continue to do so as future technologies unfold.” He added,” We want to make sure these students understand the requirements and rewards that come with a career in our field.”
In attendance were over 1,200 students, all pursuing careers in vocations such as engineering, technology, construction, and manufacturing. In that regard, the BVT Career Fair presented the perfect opportunity for Lampin to connect directly with many possible future interns and employees.
“It’s truly rewarding to see a student’s eyes light up when I talk about what I do every day,” said White. “It’s quite possible that some of the young adults we spoke with here today will have a future as a valuable Lampin team member so, in that sense, these students represent the future of our company.”
Of course, Lampin is not the only one to benefit from the event. The students also leave with valuable information that helps ensure that they are better prepared for the workforce, giving them a better understanding of where they are in their respective core disciplines relative to their planned career path. Not only does it present both students and employers with an opportunity to learn more about each other, it help students determine which skill sets they should focus on prior to graduation.
All in all, it was an enjoyable win-win.
