(WACO, Texas) – Texas State Technical College’s Career Services department sponsored a lunchtime presentation by staff members from the Pflugerville office of Daifuku Cleanroom Automation America Corp. on Wednesday, Sept. 20.
The company is an embedded contractor for the Samsung Austin Semiconductor facility and will soon work with the Samsung semiconductor facility under construction in Taylor.
Career Services representatives geared the presentation toward students in several of TSTC’s programs, including Electrical Construction, Electrical Power and Controls and Instrumentation Technology.
Company employees told students the kind of workers being sought need to be dependable, embrace new technology, solve problems, communicate well and work with others. New workers see their benefits begin the first day of employment.
Curtis Cantwell, the company’s general manager, said he was pleased with the student attendance and the questions they asked. He said the need for technically skilled workers is significant, especially with the Taylor facility scheduled to start production in 2024.
One of the students attending the session was Gavin Lane, of Troy, a Robotics and Industrial Controls Technology student scheduled to graduate next spring.
“The goal is to get into something immediately (after graduation),” he said.
The company offers tuition reimbursement, something Lane was glad to hear. He said after graduation he wants to work and continue his education to eventually become an engineer.
Company representatives did micro interviews with interested students after the presentation.
