Kicking into High Gear at the Transportation Technology Career Fair

New England Tech’s annual Transportation Technology Career Fair was held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 on the Access Road Campus in Warwick. Over 30 companies attended this year’s event, making it our largest employer turnout to date for the transportation event! A mix of automotive, automotive service management, auto body and marine companies were able to speak with current students and alumni about their businesses and share information about potential job opportunities, all while learning about the kinds of skills a New England Tech graduate brings to the table. For the students and graduates, it was a great opportunity to network and build relationships with prospective employers and learn about the many different paths their careers could lead to. A few representatives were New England Tech alumni themselves; Aaron Beltram (class of ’15) from Bald Hill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Kia, Seth Cassidy (class of ’98) from Balise Ford of Cape Cod, and Rick DaSilva (class of ’03) from Speedcraft Volkswagen.

New England Tech Ranked One of the Best Small Colleges

DegreeMatch.org-2015-Awards-Best-ISTP-Match-300x252Exciting News from DegreeMatch.org:

New England Institute of Technology has been identified as having one of the best small colleges for ISTP Myers-Briggs personality types in our recent ranking. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test (MBTI) is the most common personality measure in the United States. A student with the ISTP personality type is someone who is creative, optimistic, and loves to work with their hands.

The ranking considered overall cost of attendance, student to faculty ratio, inclusion on notable lists, ranking by U.S. News and World Report, and number of ISTP areas of study.

New England Institute of Technology has been ranked as #15.

This ranking highlights the top 30 small colleges for those with an ISTP personality.

About ISTP Personality Types

The ISTP Personality is referred to as “the Virtuoso” and considered an Explorer. These are people who love to explore the world with their hands. They are “makers” who love to move between projects and take things apart to see how they work. From a very early age, this Myers-Briggs personality type loves to tinker. Some of their best attributes include their optimism, energy, creativity, practicality, knowing how to prioritize tasks; they are excellent in a crisis and remain relaxed at all times. To some they may seem “simple” or not highly intelligent, but this is NOT often the case. This blend of traits makes for a very enigmatic person who can also be spontaneous and unpredictable. Some of their potential negative attributes include being stubborn, insensitive, reserved, easily bored, disliking commitment and sometimes even engaging in risky behavior. Some of the best ISTP jobs include mechanic, engineering, graphic design, forensic science, construction, farming, emergency medicine and landscape architect.
