HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - One recruiter at Michigan Technological University’s Automotive Industry Day offered a diverse view of his company.
Matt Hargas represents Oshkosh Corporation as campus ambassador to MTU. He’s also an MTU sixth-year Mechanical Engineering student.
His experience with Oshkosh military and fire service trucks goes even farther.
“I have what I think is a pretty unique perspective,” Hargas said. “I've been an end user of our products and then I get to also see how our products are made and take part in actually making them as well. I was in the service before I came to Michigan Tech as a student, so I served on some of their vehicles, and then I've also been a firefighter for about a decade now.”
Hargas has served as a volunteer firefighter with the Houghton Fire Department and four other departments. He’s currently in his seventh year interning with Oshkosh Corporation.
