In a move to employ social media to assist career development within the engineering community, Rogers Corp. has launched a social media program engaging online communities such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
The social media presences are linked to the new Rogers Corp. US Careers Center page at Rogers’ website, www.rogerscorp.com/careers/us. Here engineers can conduct job searches of open positions at Rogers and apply online. The site also provides information for prospective student interns, describes the corporate/community life at Rogers Corp., and provides a link to videos found at the Rogers Corp. YouTube Channel. Visitors can also subscribe to a Careers blog to learn about social networking for professional success.
On these social networking communities engineers can participate in conversations about career opportunities in the manufacturing and technology fields; engage in discussions related to career development and advancement; grow their own professional networks, connect with colleagues and industry leaders, and find mentors.
“Social media is unquestionably a powerful communication tool that employers, like Rogers Corp., need to participate in,” commented Sue Flanigan, US Director of Human Resources. “Engineers are critical to our success as a company, both as employees and customers, so we see our presence on these sites as providing an important resource for engineering professionals, plus a direct link to a possible career with Rogers Corp.”
