MILWAUKEE, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Experis, the global leader in
professional resourcing and project-based solutions, is hosting the first-ever
Experis Mission Mashup, a hackathon-type event for local college students. The
daylong session will ask participants to collaborate to solve real-world
company "missions" that will be judged using online gaming technology.
Internships and cash prizes will be awarded to top teams. The event will take
place on Sat., Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at ManpowerGroup World
Headquarters, 100 Manpower Place, Milwaukee. Event sponsors include Briggs &
Stratton Corporation (NYSE:BGG), RadMatter™, the Talent Dividend and MiKE.
"At Experis, we are committed to connecting with talented people who might be
a fit for a client or for our own team," said Steve Feest, recruiting director
for Experis in Milwaukee. "When it comes to the next generation of workers, we
know that recruiting through the traditional career fair model doesn't work.
Rather than just listing skills on a resume, the Mission Mashup approach is an
entertaining and fun way for Generation Y to showcase their problem-solving
and collaborative abilities."
During the daylong session, Mission Mashup participants will collaborate in
teams of three students comprised of individuals with a background in
marketing, digital media and IT respectively. Students will work in the
RadMatter™ social talent development platform to showcase their results. All
participants will have the opportunity to network with local company
representatives and jump-start the job search process. In addition, local
professionals will offer feedback on the teams' concepts and vote to select
the winners. Prizes will be handed out throughout the day including cash
awards and internships with sponsor Briggs & Stratton Corporation.
