On Friday, March 18, 2016, Transportation Research Center (TRC Inc.) hosted approximately 25 engineering students from OSU for a Job Shadow Day. The Job Shadow Program through OSU gives students an opportunity to take one day out of their spring break to spend time at an employer’s site to observe engineers and learn more about professional roles in the engineering field. In return, TRC Inc. has the opportunity to promote its organization and introduce the TRC Inc. Internship Program to young and upcoming professionals.

The day began with an overview of the organization, which Mark-Tami Hotta, TRC Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer, and Tim Leckey, Chief Marketing Officer, presented to the group. After the students were given time enough to ask questions, everyone set off for a tour of the outdoor facilities, which almost all of the students were seeing for the first time.
