Happy Memorial Day! First and foremost, this is a day to remember those who have given their lives to protect our freedom. Help us send a big thank you out to all of those who have ever served in the armed forces, while we remember those who are no longer with us. We considered writing about careers in the military today, but it seemed a bit out of our realm. If that’s something that interests you, then you should take a look at Today’s Military to get a better sense of the options that are out there. Instead, we’re going to stick with a Memorial Day tradition that we’re much better acquainted with – the barbecue. As the official beginning of summer, Memorial Day is the perfect time to fire up your Weber-Stephen grill.
There’s not much to know about Weber. They make awesome grills. Weber doesn’t even have an About page, so we had to go to their Wikipedia entry for more information. Here are some quick facts. 85 million American households own a charcoal grill (many of which are Webers). Weber-Stephen is located in Palatine, IL. They have 1,050 employees. There’s not much information available about the Weber-Stephen company, and that trend continues in their job postings, which are sparse to say the least.
We thought we’d find more, because the Careers section on the Weber website is featured quite prominently, but all we’ve got are job postings. Here are 3 job openings at Weber that might be suitable for a new college grad: Cost Accountant, Engineering Change Coordinator, and Engineering Lab Technician II. To apply for a job at Weber-Stephen or to get more information, you can send an e-mail (with cover letter and resume if you’re applying) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If those don’t look too exciting, you might want to look into working for the Weber Grill Restaurant, which sadly doesn’t have a Careers page.

We love grilling steaks, so excuse us for the short post while we are tending the grill. What’s your favorite thing to grill?
