Electronics and electrical engineering powerhouse Siemens USA will offer positions to 75 of its 170 interns this fall, placing 79% of them in engineering jobs.
But the company doesn’t wait until its prospective employees take summer internships before it introduces them to the Siemens brand.
The organization invests in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) initiatives at high schools and colleges, and this summer focused its hiring efforts on college graduates suitable for fast-tracking into earlydevelopment programs in technical fields.
In addition, the company places its software products in schools so more than 1 million students a year—from grade-schoolers to engineering grad students—are exposed to Siemens’ products by the time they’re ready to go to work.
“Students who have access to this technology in college have a distinct advantage when they enter the workforce,” says Hulas King, director of global community relations.
Siemens employs 62,000 in the United States and has more than 3,000 open positions, half of them in engineering.
