Aerotek looking for Safety Development Engineers


Aerotek currently has positions with Ford for Safety Development Engineers. The positions are contract and are expected to last for 12 months.  Ford is very open to entry level candidates that are coming out of school. They understands that people that are currently employed in the field probably won’t be interested in leaving their jobs for a short term position, so new grads are a perfect fit.  Candidates that are interested in the positions are typically recent grads that see the position as an opportunity to gain some valuable experience and references from a company like Ford and take that experience elsewhere after the 12 months.
