The event on Monday will occur from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the second floor of the Alumni Memorial Union (1442 West Wisconsin Avenue) in Milwaukee. The university invited students, faculty, staff and alumni to watch product demonstration and meet Foxconn representatives. Students and professionals can submit their resumes and cover letters via email to Foxconn@marquette.edu.
“At Marquette, we often talk about preparing our students for jobs that might not even exist yet. Now that Foxconn has arrived in Wisconsin, we find ourselves at the beginning of a transformational moment for our state and our region,” said Marquette President Michael R. Lovell. "We are more committed than ever to preparing our students to be innovative thinkers and problem-solvers, and believe that Marquette graduates will be a driving force in Foxconn’s success. We have a responsibility to lead the way in cultivating a strong work force, but no one institution can do this alone. From technical colleges to graduate programs, we must all work together to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity.”
