“I have been to Calvin’s campus twice to conduct mock interviews with the engineering students and I find that Calvin has THE BEST students I've seen in a very long time. They are so impressive, smart, focused and just the kind of people I want to hire in our firm. The students who I spoke to at the fair were equally as impressive and prepared. I wish I had openings for each of the 40 students I met!” – Melanie
