LOCAL TECH COMMUNITY CELEBRATES NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK 2018

Share this:

The Minneapolis technical community is excited to celebrate National Engineers Week February 18th – February 24th, 2018! Technical Recruiting firm, Konik PrimeStaff, join in celebration with 70 engineering, educational and cultural societies and more than 50 corporations and government agencies in Minnesota.  National Engineers Week is always recognized the week of George Washington’s birthday, as he was also an Engineer, who believed in the following principals:

  • Celebrate the outstanding achievements Engineers make in our daily lives
  • Educate the public about the need and impact of Engineers
  • Educate high school students about Engineering career opportunities

Specifically, Konik PrimeStaff will be celebrating the achievements of Minnesota and Upper Midwest Engineers and the impact they’ve made on our community.  From our U.S. Bank Stadium to our advanced medical device products, the impact of engineers on our daily lives is enormous.  We strongly support the local Engineering community and their endeavors.  

One of our Founders, George Konik, was an Electrical Engineer with Honeywell for many years before opening his Minneapolis-based technical recruiting and staffing firm in 1974.   Over the years we have enjoyed helping technology companies identify top-notch Mechanical Engineers, Electrical Engineers, and Structural Engineers just to name a few.  We thank our Engineering community during National Engineers Week and look forward to supporting future Engineers who are currently in high-school and college.
