Recently, Avionté partnered with the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA) to host a group of students from Hill-Murray School for a Tech Experience Tour at Avionté’s corporate office, located in Eagan, Minnesota.
The team at MHTA, an association that works to bring together the people of Minnesota’s technology ecosystem, reached out to us to see if our team would be interested in hosting and organizing an MHTA Tech Experience Tour. The events, organized by MHTA and esp IT, were created to help students discover careers in IT and the high tech business world.
“Research shows that the most effective encouragement for students to pursue a STEM career is the opportunity to meet and interact with a STEM professional,” said MHTA in their article introducing their Tech Experience Tour initiative.
Avionté provides recruiting and staffing software to the HR industry. We’ve grown tremendously and now have nearly 130 employees at the corporate office. Of course, we jumped at the chance to take part!
The Tech Experience Tour kicked off at Avionté on April 20th beginning at 11 a.m. with a tour of the office, lunch and an interactive game. Then, the students learned from our panelists about the company’s staffing software solutions and about each of our panelist’s unique experiences working within the technology industry.
“The students from Hill-Murray were wonderful to host,” said Angela Lawrence. “With a number of job opportunities available, projections for job growth and the variety of career choices within the technology industry, it’s exciting to see students with such drive and genuine passion towards technology.”
Thank you, MHTA, for reaching out to us and asking us to be involved and thank you to the students and faculty at Hill-Murray for coming by!
