Digi-Key Opens its Doors for Second Career Expo June 4

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - June 1, 2011

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's broadest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, is hosting its second Career Expo from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 4 at Digi-Key's 600,000 square-foot facility at 701 Brooks Avenue South in Thief River Falls, MN.

This is the second Career Expo Digi-Key has hosted. The first Career Expo took place in January at the Best Western Hotel in Thief River Falls.

"Our first Career Expo was a great success, allowing us to meet hundreds of quality applicants from Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota," said Rick Trontvet, Digi-Key's vice president of human resources. "Since then, we've heard feedback that candidates would like to see our world-class facility up close. We believe this second Career Expo on June 4, within our own building, will be an even greater success and allow us to meet more high-quality candidates."

Participants in the Digi-Key Career Expo will be able to apply for numerous open positions, and Digi-Key management representatives will be on hand to interview applicants that day. Currently, Digi-Key is seeking to fill positions in its product distribution, logistics, sales, accounting, marketing, and corporate research areas.

"The goal of our Career Expo is to provide a convenient weekend time and setting for prospective local and regional candidates to travel to Digi-Key and speak with management representatives 'up close and personal' about careers at Digi-Key," Trontvet said. "We want applicants to get a closer look at our facility and to connect directly with our leadership team, so that we can together understand candidate skill sets and match them with the many job opportunities that exist at Digi-Key. Digi-Key is growing at a very rapid rate, and we have an urgent need to find the best and brightest talent to help us meet our corporate expansion goals."
