General Motors Drives Jobs to Technology Centers



There is always a sense of excitement when a company arrives on campus to conduct interviews.  We have been working towards their visit for weeks, months, or in some cases years.  It is finally time for them to meet our greatest asset: our students.  We know that when a company interviews a Horned Frog, they will return time and again to this deep well of talent.

Our relationship with General Motors began in Detroit as their vision for technology centers moved from concept to reality.  Austin, Texas became their choice to open the first centralized GM Technology Center.  Amidst a  national recruiting blitz, TCU students stood out and received coveted job offers putting TCU on the General Motors “recruiting radar”.  We were pleased to hear TCU would again be a target university for their 2013-2014 recruiting efforts.  By Christmas, we are hopeful Business Information Systems, Computer Science, Computer Information Technology, Engineering and Mathematic students will receive offers for consideration.

The Technology Center concept has picked up momentum in General Motors.  The Austin campus opened with 22 employees in Sep 2012 and now has 800+ employees.  Centers in Atlanta and Phoenix are currently the focus of recruiting efforts.  Students interested in technology careers and have a desire to live in Phoenix or Atlanta should email their resume to Susan Sledge.  She will put it in the hands of recruiters.

General Motors IT does not have an internship program and has been concentrating on full-time positions only.  The recruiter did mention they hope to create an internship program for Summer 2015 with opportunities in Detroit, Austin, Atlanta, and Phoenix.  Sophomores, get to know your Career Services Advisors so they can keep you up to date with the latest information.
