IDEX welcomed 40 high-caliber collegiate candidates to its headquarters in Lake Forest, IL, this week as part of our investment in building a diverse IDEX talent pipeline across engineering, supply chain, finance and human resources.
Many of this year’s candidates are referrals from the inaugural cohort, which speaks highly of their experiences across IDEX, which is committed to building diverse, cross-functional talent.
The program is designed to attract and grow graduates in roles with significantly increased responsibility. May 2019 will represent the second collegiate cohort. Candidates selected will receive opportunities ranging from summer internships to rotational full-time opportunities at IDEX businesses around the country.
Candidates traveled from universities nationwide including Iowa State, Dartmouth, University of Texas, Western Michigan, Ohio State, University of Illinois, University of Minnesota and more to meet with IDEX executives who tested their decision-making, collaboration and team-building skills. During the event, candidates also participated in problem solving simulations and had the opportunity to speak one-on-one with IDEX leaders from across the country.
