Alumnus Among Wildcats Hiring Wildcats

MSE alumnus Don Zipperian with recent College of Engineering alumnus Raul GracianoOne of the primary goals of the UA Alumni Association Career and Professional Development Lab is to connect talented graduates with alumni employers, whether through high-tech webinars or face-to-face meetings. 

For an example of the lab’s success, look no further than recent graduate Raul Graciano, who received a degree in mechanical engineering in May 2016. Graciano was looking for a job when he met Don Zipperian, MSE PhD 1986, through a Career Lab meet-and-greet

Zipperian is vice president of PACE Technologies, a Tucson-based metallography company. The two clicked; Graciano has been with the company for several months now, and Zipperian was grateful to hire a fresh grad with a continual passion for learning.
