Fluid Power Careers Information Session
September 11, 2020 | 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST
Zoom Webinar 

On September 11, Purdue University will host a Fluid Power Careers Information Session where students will hear from industry members about their companies, career opportunities and more.

We are currently seeking industry representatives to serve as panelists for the break-out sessions. NFPA will group similar representatives in break-out sessions which students will choose upon registration. Break-out session topics could be focused on a specific type of fluid power technology and its use at your company, internships and co-op programs, etc. We will finalize these topics after reviewing who the interested panelists are.

The goal of the event is to spark interest in fluid power careers and your company among Purdue University students of all grade-levels. For companies that regularly attend Purdue University’s Fall Career Fair, this is a great opportunity to create awareness for students who will be looking to lock in their first career before graduating.

Purdue University has been a loyal education partner and member of the fluid power community for some time. In recognition of Purdue’s efforts to promote fluid power education, they will be named NFPA’s first Power Partner University.

Purdue has met all of the criteria for the program, including:

If your company would like to participate on a panel or take part in the event as an attendee, please RSVP by August 28th to Amy Zignego at azignego@nfpa.com or (414) 778-3376.
