Recently, one alumni, Julian Johnson (’23) got his start at Alro Steel through his two professors who introduced him to go to a career fair happening at the time to introduce himself. Shortly after meeting with the staff at Alro, he got an internship by attending one of the career events which landed him a job post graduation!
