An opportunity to showcase your member companies as employment destinations for the large number of highly qualified graduating seniors competing in the event. These students can be viewed as both future employees and future customers (on both a B2B and retail level). These are young adults with a passion for performance regardless of the wheel count. Compared to the traditional interview process, this competition allows you to observe the students working on a project. By competing they have proven that they can deliver a project on-time, on-schedule, and as a team. These are three qualities that every company desires, but are difficult to verify in a traditional interview process. Best of all, this is NOT a pay-to-play situation. The 2006 Formula SAE West event is fully funded by the SAE Foundation. The focus of Formula SAE West is in bringing engineers, engineering managers, other automotive professionals, and recruiters to the competition to interact directly with the students. A volunteer orientation is being hosted on Saturday, April 22nd at the NHRA museum. All are welcome. What: Formula SAE West Volunteer Meeting When: Saturday, April 22nd @ 2:00pm Where: NHRA Museum 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Building 3A Pomona CA, 91768 Additional information about Formula SAE can be found at http://students.sae.org/ and http://www.fsae.com/
