Virginia Commonwealth University started out in 1838 as Medical College of Hampden-Sydney, later becoming the Medical College of Virginia. It wasn’t until 1968 that the name became Virginia Commonwealth University. VCU has been providing progressive curriculums to their students and providing the job market with top notch employees for quite a long time. This year they had their first engineering fair since prior to covid and it was a huge success. Mellott was represented by Matt and Tim from our engineering department and Matt had this to say regarding the event, “We are grateful to have been included in VCU’s first engineering career fair post-COVID and for the high level of professional enthusiasm exhibited by students in each graduating class.”

The struggle has been very real to find employees for many types of businesses throughout the United States and Mellott has been no stranger to that struggle. Being able to attend a top-notch career fair helps both the businesses and the students to connect in a professional atmosphere and enables open communication for all involved. Anita Taylor, VCU Engineering’s director of Career Services, said, “I’m delighted that the VCU College of Engineering Internship and Career Fairs provided great benefit to our students and employers. The personal interaction and face-to-face conversations provided an opportunity to engage at a level that has been missing for the past few years. We are looking forward to many more opportunities to connect employers like Mellot Company with our high-achieving engineering and computer science students.”

 

This was Mellott’s first year participating in the VCU College of Engineering Internship and Careers Fair, and our Manager of Human Resources, Jeff Rowland, said, “It was a pleasure to see two of our finest representatives of Engineering, Matt Sweitzer, VT Mining Engineer grad and Tim Rohm, UPJ Mechanical Engineer grad recruiting for their respective areas. They had the best opportunity to draw in our next engineering employee, they enjoyed the experience and look forward to their next recruiting event.”
