PITTSBURG, Mo. – Pittsburg State University today announced a waiting list for its Company Days event for the first time in history.

Officials announced this week that this year’s attendance for the two-day event includes 239 companies.

“In my 23 years at PSU, I do not remember a time when we had this many companies coming to campus,” said Tim Dell, a professor in Automotive Technology and coordinator of the diesel and heavy equipment program.

The event spans Sept. 20-21 at the Kansas Technology Center, home to the College of Technology.

Company Days began in 1998 as a one-day event hosted by the School of Construction, and it has grown in reach and popularity ever since.

“We prioritize both fall and spring recruiting events at Pittsburg State because of their incredible construction program,” said Kim Froman, director of talent acquisition at Crossland Construction in Columbus, Kansas. “We find top talent for our internship program and our field and project engineer roles for graduates.”

It’s a significant first step for students toward future careers, noted Jim Otter, director of the School of Construction, because it allows them to practice networking.
