Business Hosts Career Panel Luncheon

Monday 9, 2018

Northern Michigan University’s College of Business will host an Iron Mountain Career Panel Luncheon for NMU students from any major from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, April 19, in the Brule Room of NMU’s University Center. Space for this event is limited. Register by Wednesday, April 18, at

The event includes a free lunch and a discussion of career opportunities. Business owners from Iron Mountain seeking employees will be present.

“Normally, a panel is invited from a particular industry,” said David Rayome, dean of NMU’s College of Business. “This time, we are highlighting an economic area in the Upper Peninsula. The Iron Mountain area is the hottest economic area in the U.P., with more than 600 current job openings for all industries.”

Guest panelists include Tom Andes of the Thomas Theatre Group; Raphael Bennett of Neustep; Erik Kleiman of Kleiman Pump and Well Drilling; Jesse Land of Upper Peninsula Machine and Engineering; Carol Quandt of 41 Lumber; David Brisson of Great American Disposal; and Lois Ellis of Dickinson Area Economic Development Alliance.

Registration includes a plated lunch. Panelists will be available after the luncheon is over to meet with those who are interested in working in the area or unable to attend the luncheon due to class scheduling.
