HR Personnel, Hiring Managers, Recruiters are Invited!

THE Project 2016, WMPMI’s fifth annual collegiate project management competition, will hold its event day in late Spring of 2016 at The Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville. It features a reverse career fair, the final four team presentations, a keynote speech, and the awards presentation.

Colleges and universities throughout Western Michigan will compete to provide solutions in the form of detailed project plans to a specific business scenario yet to be determined by WMPMI.

All the student teams will give presentations to a PM Panel in the morning, followed by lunch and a session for the teams from one of our esteemed speakers.  After this address and prior to our announcement of the “Final Four” winners, we'll be putting on a Reverse Career Fair where the leading companies in West Michigan will have a chance to meet and even interview all of the participating students for internships, full-time positions or just to find future talent for their organizational needs going forward.

In this "Reverse Career Fair", you (as a Hiring Manager, HR professional or Recruiter) will have the opportunity to work your way around the room meeting with every talented student competitor.  You don't have to bring any materials or do any set-up. This is all done by the competitors as each team will have a table of their own and be armed with resume's, business cards, portfolios, etc. to impress you as you make your way to all the tables.  You are just there to experience the talent we have as a representative of your company.

Make ultra-efficient use of your time in that hour and a half with access to 70+ of our best new hires for you, with varying backgrounds, experiences and degree areas... but ALL with newfound knowledge of Project Management principles and methodology.

  • Occupations using Project Management skills or Credentialed Project Managers are increasing radically. 
  • There is a growing skills gap in the availability of people with project management skills and the need for them. 
  • “Students with Project Management coursework hit the ground running almost 8 – 10 months faster than students without the coursework”, noted a business working with the University of Maryland.
  • Recruiters may charge 20 – 30% of the first year salary to find these candidates – you can have access to them in a couple hours! (great ROI!)
