Partnering with Local Technical High Schools a Bright Idea
The best and brightest students from the electronics departments of local Technical High Schools participate in Work Based Learning programs at Altek to gain exposure to industry, and at the same time bring technical knowledge and new methods and ideas to Altek. These students dovetail nicely with our other employees. Altek offers graduating students the opportunity to continue employment. In this way, we stay in the forefront of our quickly changing industry.
In addition to collaborating with Technical High Schools, Altek also works with Torrington High School and Northwestern Connecticut Community College to offer a solder training program to non-technical high school students. By doing this we increase our outreach for new talent to ensure we have enough qualified employees to fill positions.
