Hubbell Galvanizing sponsored an exhibit at Manufacturing Day at the Jorgensen Athletic and Events Center at Mohawk Valley Community College. The event was put on by SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Advanced Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) on October 18th.
Attendees to the event ranged from middle school, high school, and college students as well as job seekers. We were very impressed and encouraged by the questions the students asked as they came through the exhibit. For example, how did you decide to get in to manufacturing? Tell me about the products your company makes? Do you have a social media presence? What are some careers that are available through your company? What are the environmental impacts on your company’s products?
Jack Mulvihill, Alexandra Semeraro, Frank Gerace, Diane Weekes, and Kerie Albano represented the companies at the Career Exploration Fair. It was a great chance to educate the community about our companies, the products we manufacture, steel fabrication, signs and structures, the galvanizing process and powder coating as well as career opportunities. We look forward to participating in next year’s event!
