CIM Faculty/Staff Member
Lucy Watt, Recruiter
School: New Jersey Institute of Technology
In my role as the CIM program recruiter at NJIT, I advise prospective students about our program and support the university’s enrollment, retention and graduation goals. I promote the CIM program to prospective applicants and their parents and assist them with the application process. In addition to working with students, I am also responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with partners in the concrete industry and our university Patrons to enhance the recruiting process.
The easiest question for me to answer is why should I consider a major in CIM? CIM is supported by networks of local, state and regional concrete industry producers, suppliers and contractors as well as industry associations that pledge their time to support the development of our program. This unique partnership provides a direct link between the industry and our university. This network of industry leaders provides CIM students opportunities for internships, mentoring and career development and scholarships. In addition, the program offers opportunities for students to network with company leadership. Some students have received job offers because of these meetings!
