Career fair helps operations management graduate compare positions before choosing Micron

"I earned a degree in production/operations management, finance and management from the University of Idaho in 2011. I received three job offers from attending a U of I Career Fair, and selected my current company, Micron, based upon meeting my employer at the event.

I knew the recruiter was coming to class prior to the career fair, so I made sure to write a cover letter and resume tailored to the position. I handed it to the recruiter at the end of class and introduced myself. This gave me extra confidence when exploring booths at the career fair, and I went straight to the Micron booth to learn more about the position. Thanks to the career fair, I was able to easily compare a variety of positions and see what was available for me out in the “real world.” Most importantly, it got me a job.

My current position is a product engineering planner. I assist Micron’s planning, engineering and marketing groups when a product is brand new and needs a lot of special attention. I also help whenever we are trying to do something outside the norm on production volume. When a product is just starting out, I work to bring all groups together — assembly, test, quality assurance, marketing, engineering, etc. — and make sure everyone is working toward the correct common goal. I also manage the entire inventory line and make sure high-priority orders are getting filled with the correct material.

Micron has a lot of different opportunities, so I am looking forward to where my career takes me. I would like to stay in the planning realm, and would ideally become a planning lead, responsible for a team of planners."
