Paul Black, Senior Operational Systems Engineer at Exton’s Analytical Graphics, recently visited Penn State Fall Career Days in search of top talent for the software developer, writes Joe Battista for StateCollege.com.
Career Days took place in mid-September and saw a record number of more than 10,000 participants.
“Employers travel to campus to meet students from all majors and all years to recruit for their various staffing needs during one, often multi-day, visit,” according to the Career Services website.
AGI specializes in software development and fixing software bugs as it helps manage the 9,000 objects that are currently orbiting the planet. Its motto is “Mapping Space and Time. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.”
AGI’s Commercial Space Operations Center was established three years ago, with its trademarked “SpaceBook” already becoming the gold standard in the industry. Black said his aim was to find top aerospace and computer science candidates for the company.
It was also a sort of homecoming for Black. He is also a Penn State Aerospace Engineering graduate, despite the fact that both his mother and siblings all attended West Chester University.
