OT: TKP Job Board

I've wanted to start a TKP Job Board for awhile, but with so many layoffs due to Covid-19, I thought now would be a good time.

Guidelines so things don't get crazy:

  • Only list a job once
  • Please include your email in the job posting for offline discussion.
  • Please update your original job posting comment when the job has been filled
  • If you are interested in a job, please email the poster directly to reduce noise

Any other guidelines that would be helpful?

My goal with this is to connect Hokies in need with companies that are hiring!

Hey jmecca, can I drop you an email or DM about the position? I'm very interested.

Please do!

Email: jmecca at veruna dot com or LinkedIn is good too.

A/E firm Looking for:
Mechanical Engineers
Electrical Engineers
Construction Administrators
Structural Designers/Engineers
Architect/ Project Managers

Offices in Blacksburg, Charleston, WV, and Martinsburg, WV.
Firm does a wide range of work. K-12, Governmental, higher Ed, industrial, medical/behavioral health. Most anything except residential, developer work, churches. I mean, we occasionally do these, but they aren't markets we often dabble in.

Your firm ever offer Internships or Coop opportunities. My son is a Sophomore Civil major and is starting to look.

Yes. We have one a year ahead working for us right now (she wants to go structural, but is doing a bit of both). As he gets closer to wanting to look for such things, have him drop off a resume at ZMM (it's beside the south main Kroger). Or can email it to careers@zmm.com.

Will do. Thank you.

This is still active. Civil is also on the table.

Is there a way to keep this pinned somewhere so it stays up? We just hired 2 people for the entry-level position and I would have loved to have posted here.

This is good, but I really thought the first post was going to be for VT head football coach.

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

Was looking for just this when the thread was posted....Bravo. Needed something to smile about.

I work at the John's Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. They are hiring machanical, aerospace, electrical and systems engineers like crazy right now.

As do I....and yep, lots of hiring (though the interview/hiring process is VERY slow). What sector do you work in?

I work in the force projection sector. Yourself?

If you play it, they will win.

So filled with hope
I can taste mythical fountains
False hope, perhaps
But the truth never got in my way
Before now, feel the sting
Feeling time bearing down

New Grads (2020 or 2021) with Biology/Life Sciences Degrees needed at the National Institutes of Health. We have a couple of Lab Tech/Lab Admin positions open. These are entry level roles with the National Cancer Institute doing groundbreaking work in Cancer Research.

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

Supporting FudBoster: to any new grads (2020 or 2021) with Biology/Life Sciences degrees ... I strongly encourage you to get an a real job for at least a couple of years outside of academia (i.e., one that pays a real salary and offers a 401k or 403b or whatever similar number/letter-like program) and not go into a Ph.D. program right away. And taking a year off to work as a lab tech in an academic setting like I did does not count.

I can go on for days about why you should be careful about staying in academia from age 17 through 29. Just make sure that you truly enjoy the day-to-day work of being in a lab and that you understand what the job market really is for Ph.D. scientists before jumping into that route (hint: the notion that there is a shortage of scientists at that level for the jobs that need to be filled is so far from reality it would make Goebbel's blush). Getting a masters is, as far as I know, okay. And if you get all the information and, with eyes wide open, feel that a doctorate in the life sciences is the way to go, you can still do it. Just make sure to do your own due diligence first.

Thanks for the follow up. Well said. I'd also add that NIH is a great place to obtain references for folks that are looking to continue their education for Ph.D programs. These folks are well known and well connected.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Aside: How long have you been with Pearson?

I should talk with y'all about some of your capabilities, maybe at the next Pack EXPO. It would be nice to have a local integrator to work with.

So I've been with pearson since they bought my old company Flexicell about 3 years and wouldve been 5 years with Flexicell. Dont think we are going to this years pack EXPO due to covid concerns but we do a wide range of stuff now along with the robotic integration. We do a very wide range of case packing, palletizing, and with Pearsons tech case building sealing etc so we can do all of a packing job with our wide range.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Ok cool, I worked with Flexicell maybe 8 years back on a project on one of our packaging lines. Didn't know they had been bought.

Yeah so the old owner sold so he could retire and we got bought by pearson so now we can do all parts of a packaging line with their tech combined with ours. We still do primarily all the robotic integration here in VA as its kind of our specialty in a way plus we have a fab shop to do all the custom parts when we need them which makes it easier to keep it all in house. Hope the line yall got a few years back is going strong I help out with refurbs and rebuilds alot so I get to see and work on alot of the older stuff and do alot of the aftermarket refurbs with all the electrical stuff.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly on LinkedIn if you are interested or have any questions about any of the positions: www.linkedin.com/in/david-linkenauger-cpe-97456521

Literally closed on a house in Sandston yesterday. My wife (MSE grad) got a job at DuPont and I'm (history major) just looking to see what's in the area. I'll check in our your opportunities, any other good companies in this area?

There are a ton of businesses in the area between Laburnum and the Bottoms Bridge exit on 64 (mi 205).

Not sure what type of work you are looking for, but if you are flexible there should be an opportunity for you within 10 minutes of your house.

My company is looking to bring in a couple of people for the entry-level Research Analyst role in the medical technologies (Med-Tech) group. Full time and $50,000 per year. Great opportunity for science and engineering people who want to get into the business aspects of science, but we really don't care that much about the specific degree you have.

Our entry-level positions are for people who are still in school but getting ready to graduate (end of the summer is okay) or who are recent graduates with 0-2 years of work experience. We don't say a job requires 3 years of experience in the field and then have the gall to call it "entry level". I would normally handle the initial resume and cover letter review, but if anyone applies from TKP, I will recuse myself and have someone else make the final interview decisions. Feel it would be better if I did not evaluate others from here.

As with the job posted above, people are expected to be in the office in Horsham, PA once things get back to normal. Please do not apply unless you are living in the Philadelphia area or are willing to move there - and we are not going to pay relocation for an entry-level position. Just no way to justify the cost for that. We only post on local university websites and I post here for fellow Hokies just in case you are in the area or from the area.

If you are interested, just reply to this post and I'll get in touch with you.

We are a full-service market research consulting firm conducting both qualitative and quantitative research for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries. The Med-Tech group focuses primarily on medical devices and technology. Our clients include large multi-national firms as well as mid-sized and emerging companies. As a global firm with major offices in the US, UK, France and Singapore, the majority of our studies involve working in multiple countries with physicians, patients, caregivers, allied health professionals, or payers.

The Research Analyst's primary roles are to coordinate fieldwork with vendors, analyze the results from primary market research and help prepare slides to be incorporated into final reports for clients. This includes:

Obtain cost quotes from vendors for senior management
Liaison with fieldwork agencies to assure proper recruiting of the people we are interviewing occurs within the specified time frame
Provide regular updates to the client about how the project is progressing
Prepare notes and analyze the results of individual one-on-one interviews or focus group interviews conducted by RP
Analyze results obtained from quantitative surveys RP is conducting
Prepare slides for senior management, which will be incorporated into final reports

We offer formal as well as on-the-job training, competitive salaries, and opportunities for internal advancement, health benefits, flextime, and a 401K plan with company contributions. Positions are open immediately, but we are able to accommodate those who will graduate by the end of the summer, 2021

Candidates for the entry-level Research Analyst position should:

Be a US citizen or legal resident able to work indefinitely in the US without sponsorship – we do not currently sponsor H1B Visas or OPT candidates
Either (1) anticipate graduation by the summer of 2021 (end of summer is okay) or (2) be a recent college graduate with 0-2 years of work experience
Have a minimum GPA of 3.0 for serious consideration
Have strong verbal, written, and interpersonal skills – initial interviews will take place by telephone and candidates will be asked to provide a writing and PowerPoint sample before any in-person interviews occur
Be comfortable working with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
Once things get back to normal, be willing to travel approximately 10% of the time – the majority of travel is US domestic, but some international travel is possible, including to the home office in London
Be logistically based at the US home office in Horsham – most of the office is working remotely and will likely continue this way for a while. We currently allow people to work remotely or come into the office based on their comfort level with coming in - but some staff training will take place in the main office.

The ideal candidate will have a natural science, social science, engineering, or business/marketing background, but this is not required. Experience in market research, experience in healthcare, medical devices/technology, or fluency in multiple languages are pluses, but not required.
