Every year, Salit Steel partners with local Colleges and Universities to offer summer employment opportunities to students who are in full time post-secondary education.
As our summer students head back to class this week, we’d like to share some thoughts from one our students, Justin Caporuscio, who is embarking on a new adventure this fall – moving to France to study abroad!
Justin has spent the last three summers working for Salit Steel. Justin’s first year was spent in Production, and in his second year he worked as a Service Centre Assistant helping out quotes and post and pre-production. This year, he spent the summer as an Operations Assistant in our Niagara Falls head office.
“I really liked the projects that I have been a part of, and having my supervisor place his trust in me to give me a high level of responsibility.
I have learned that teamwork and communication is a huge key to success here, and that we all do it really well.
This year I’ve had a lot of opportunities to work with computers and even learn about coding, which pushed me out of my comfort zone.
I also learned that Salit Steel supplied the steel for BMO field, and being a TFC fan I think that is pretty cool!
I am currently studying Business at Brock University with a focus in Marketing. In the Fall I am headed to France to study international marketing and I hope to become a Marketing Manager, or anything to do with strategic marketing when I am done school.
Working on projects at Salit has also encouraged me to consider a position in Project Management.”
To be considered for our summer student program, students must be in a discipline related to our industry, which believe it or not, covers a wide range of studies. We employ students in many roles including junior detailers, human resources, accounting, administrative support, special projects, IT and roles on the front lines in production including welding, mechanical engineering.
Regardless of the role, we take pride in providing training for our students and do everything we can to make them feel a part of the Salit team. Some of students go on to join us in full-time employment after graduation.
