The Sierra College Mechatronics career fair was held on May 21 at Harris & Bruno International in Roseville. Students had an opportunity to talk with many Sacramento area manufacturing companies to learn about employment openings.
Tony Osladil, Mechatronics Department Chair, Sierra College, reported that industry partners responded positively to the event. “Despite our reduced number of graduates this semester due to COVID distancing requirements in our labs, I was glad to hear that businesses indicated that it was well worth the time to come and talk with students,” said Osladil. “I look forward to getting back to our usual 20+ graduates per semester starting in the fall.”
Not only did Harris & Bruno host the event, the company graciously provided lunch for the attendees. “The barbeque was excellent,” said Osladil. “With the college still being hesitant to have events on campus, Harris & Bruno’s hosting of this event was greatly appreciated. The company has been a partner of the Mechatronics program since our very beginning over 15 years ago and continues to be a valued industry partner and leader in the local business community. Thank you to Courtney, Teresa, and Nick for making this happen.”
Osladil indicated that the next Sierra College Mechatronics career fair will be planned for November 2021. In the meantime, he is taking feedback from companies on ways to enhance the event. Contact Tony Osladil.
