Where Energy Companies Find Energetic New Hires

Summer 2006

IN EARLY MARCH, representatives from Shell Oil, Baltimore Gas & Electric, and Constellation Energy came to the Homewood campus to hold employment informational sessions for undergraduates.

“We had a good turn-out,” says Lani Hummel, director of the Office of Industrial Initiatives at the Whiting School of Engineering. Students enjoyed meeting with representatives from the companies’ human resources, research, and operations departments. After listening to presentations about employment opportunities, the students could speak informally with the representatives, ask questions, and offer their résumés.

Says Hummel, “While companies across the country are paring down their list of schools from which they recruit, they are still coming to Johns Hopkins. They want to meet our students because they know the quality of what our graduates have to offer.”
