ICPF Student Design Presentation Competition

The ICPF Teleconference this past February 21 included ICPF's 2019 Student Design Presentation Competition. Three student teams from Cal Poly and the University of Texas at Arlington, were tasked to show, tell and sell their designs (that won first or second place in a separate 2018 AICC design competition) by explaining the objective, the research conducted, design and other background. One Cal Poly team secured first place, second place went to the University of Texas – Arlington student team and the second Cal Poly student team won third place. All three teams received cash prizes. (Links to their advance design presentation competition 5 minute practice videos can be accessed by visiting the related page by clicking HERE.) These exceptional students have posted their resumes on ICPF’s career portal and are using it to locate spring 2019 career openings in the areas of sales, production/operations management and design.

With hundreds of students seeking 2019 openings in the industry, now is a crucial time to reach out to recruit students. Utilizing ICPF’s career portal since this past August to post 2019 openings, two ICPF corporate partners already have hired over 40 student interns and upcoming 2019 graduates.  For those ICPF corporate partners (and firms considering corporate partner pledges) that have entry level openings or wish to offer a student internship, the single most proven tool for recruiting is ICPF's Career Portal.  Not only do you get direct applications from new or upcoming graduates, the posting of an opening allows your firm to search ICPF’s online Resume Bank that more than 100 active resumes. If your firm has an entry level opening in sales, production management, business, packaging design, chemical or other engineering, or you wish to locate a student intern for this coming summer or fall, contact rflaherty@icpfbox.org to get started.  ICPF's Career Portal is a free benefit for ICPF corporate partners.
