Toni Belhu, manager of organizational development, likes to see resumes that include manufacturing work.
Engineers and IT pros are in demand at the world's largest manufacturer of tires and rubber products, says Toni Belhu, manager of organizational development. Jobs to be filled may include project managers, industrial engineers, technical service managers, lab managers and programmers, Belhu says. The company also hires ChEs, MEs and EEs. As an SAP company, Bridgestone needs IT folks with that background. And it seeks pros with legacy experience who can easily learn the company's proprietary systems. HR staffers at Bridgestone Americas like to see resumes that include manufacturing work, even from recent grads. Belhu encourages students to look for manufacturing-related internships or summer jobs. The company prefers college plus two years experience for starting positions, and likes to see up to ten or twelve years in the field for many other jobs. Each plant has its own engineering staff, Belhu says. "As a result of that we started a women's business council here seven years ago," Belhu says. "We now have them at several locations. The company also has a new-manager program focused on diversity awareness. Bridgestone Americas has a yearly "disability day," bringing in college students with disabilities to visit and work alongside company people. The company also sponsors the Inroads program for minority interns, and Belhu works with Tennessee State to put on day-long sessions of mock interviews that help students prepare for job hunting. Belhu is a certified career coach, and is available to employees who want advice in planning their futures. Bridgestone employees are eager to give back to their communities at every location, Belhu says. "We do a lot of things that are funneled up from the grass roots," Belhu concludes.
