Milwaukee® Strengthens Partnership with University of Michigan Students

MILWAUKEE, WI – For the second consecutive year, Milwaukee® Tool has been named, “The Official Networking Sponsor” of the nation’s largest, student-run sport-business conference, the Michigan Sport Business Conference (MSBC). Strengthening their partnership with the organization, Milwaukee® will host the 2nd annual Networking Boot Camp on October 1st from 7PM – 8:30PM, giving students the chance to practice networking with Michigan Alumni and industry marketing professionals.

“We are excited and fortunate to continue our partnership with MSBC and the students at Michigan,” said Tim Albrecht, Sr. Vice President/GM of Marketing for Milwaukee Tool.  “This experience will offer students the chance to refine their skills prior to the MSBC and ensure that they are prepared to network with industry professionals.”

Milwaukee’s renewed partnership, which will span the 2014-2015 academic year, will provide additional resources to Michigan students by allowing them to work directly with Milwaukee Tool senior leadership and marketing employees to practice networking, presentations, resume writing and interviewing.

“The Milwaukee Tool and MSBC team have worked collaboratively over the last few months to create a strategy that will really enhance our attendees’ experience. The relationship will not only teach students how to effectively use their time at the conference but will also provide students with access to a company specifically looking to recruit MSBC attendees.”
