Spring Recruiting Season is Right Around the Corner!

Jan 12, 2022 / #HarbisonHires, Recruiting

Spring Recruiting Season is upon us at HarbisonWalker International, and our team is excited at the opportunity to connect with engineering and supply chain students to discuss our Focused Intense Rotational Education (FIRE) Program. 

HWI’s FIRE program was created to strengthen our talent by providing opportunities to contribute across HWI business and operations disciplines. Participants will gain first-hand experience across a broad range of functions and departments. Our program provides promising new technically-oriented graduates with challenging developmental assignments designed to quickly build new skills and contribute to the organization. You will take part in complex projects, receive on-the-job training, learn our business, and build your network throughout our organization.

Through this robust rotational program, participants will become crucial members of the organization, with the opportunity to make a lasting impact on the business by sharing innovative ideas with team members and leadership. Developmental assignments will be assigned by interest and business need, and graduates will receive additional learning and personal development opportunities to supplement technical growth.
