University Partnerships Graduate School Recruitment Fair

University Partnerships Graduate School Recruitment Fair


These students have been working
very hard all summer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. And because we have such a great
strategic relationship with ORNL, what we do is give our member institutions a chance
to interview some of the brightest new researchers that come into the lab before they go back
home. Well, the grad fair is a great opportunity
for our member schools to talk to students who’ve had a good summer experience at ORNL.
And they really areÉ these are students who are prime students who are ready to go
to grad school and could really be excellent performers at any school. It’s also exciting this year to have Y-12
join us. Some of their interns have joined us. Those are more engineering students. So
the breadth of students is just amazing. We have biological students, physics students,
chemistry students, engineering students, just every discipline. So it’s really a great
chance to match these people up. We’re looking for scientists, engineers, people interested in technology, mathematics. This is a good place to find them? This is an incredible place to find these
kind of students. The benefit for us is they’re already test driving graduate education by
doing research, so this isÉ they’re on the path, so this is a really nice place for
us to come for students. It’s a cross-section of students whether they’re business, engineers, math, and science.
A wide range of students that we offer opportunities right there at Y-12. We have actually have encountered several
students here during the graduate fair and research symposium, and we’ve had an opportunity
to enroll and offer fellowship and scholarship opportunity to several students at the University
of South Florida. We’re looking for our top students. The CIRE program attracts students from all across
the country coming out of the top engineering and scientific programs, and so students that
have already been at the lab, working at ORNL, getting engaged in project, meeting mentors,
and doing really high-quality project work are who we’re really looking for. I think it’s good, because the people here
understand the interests of the students working at the lab, and they understand their backgrounds
and what they’re looking for in graduate schools. The overall experience about learning, everything that was going on, the history of Y-12 , that
was a big thing in Oak Ridge. That was amazing what they did back in the days. And also just being a part
of new innovations that they were putting together. Like this activity, it helps me with network and
having other connections to see not only, like, your home that you have, like other
visions, other kind of opportunity and they exist. A few of the schools around, that I’ve been looking at so far, haven’t looked a whole
lot, are here, so just kind of nice to talk to someone and get information that’s hard
to find on the website.
