Mantis™ Participates in Tech Square Job Fair
Mantis recruits for Cross Functional Team to join in Innovative STEM education think tank.
Sponsored by Sage, Square on Fifth and Sandbox ATL, the event was held Thursday afternoon, March 31, 2016, at The Garage located at 848 Spring St. NW in Midtown Atlanta. About 400 students made their way around the venue talking with over twenty organizations that were in search of future talent. The job fair made for a great two-way dialogue wherein both the job seeker and those hiring could learn about one another in a casual environment.
Fortified with very interesting projects in their queue, Mantis was eager to engage with participants. The team brought a few of their STEM kits and sensor products to make the experience more hands-on and engaging. While, not exactly a startup, Mantis constantly embarks on new projects that can involve everything from 3D printing to wearable sensors to K-12 classroom or hobbyist climate stations.
"Tech Square Job Fair removed the barriers of a normal job fair and allowed students to demonstrate their passion for coding rather than focusing on merely selling themselves. Hearing stories about their work with radar technology, or how improvements were made off of existing technologies, is far more valuable than a resume", said Evan McCullough, a Mantis Representative . Another representative observed that by "engaging in actual conversation"
The Mantis team left the event excited about the talented individuals they had met. "We are an organization that focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math and when it comes to those subjects, Georgia Tech puts out some of the best. We can attest to the University's success through our own interviewing, hiring and intern experiences"
