College of Engineering Connects Students with Employers
Employers are seeking increasing numbers of graduates in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering and math. In order to fill this need, the College of Engineering, along with the Career Development Center, are offering more opportunities than ever for students to find their future careers.
The largest of these events is the STEM fair, which will take place on March 1. More than 85 employers are participating in this day-long event, where students can talk to representatives from companies, graduates schools and the military.
At the STEM fair, employers provide information about available jobs, take resumes and even schedule job interviews. Prior to the STEM fair, some employers are holding information sessions, and graduate students are invited to attend a mixer with potential employers on the evening before the STEM fair.
"Employers will see more than 1,000 students enter the career fair on March 1 and this is a great opportunity for employers to find the talent their organizations are looking for," said Brian Henderson, director of Employer Relations at the College of Engineering.
Companies interested in sending representatives to the STEM fair must register by Thursday, Feb. 23.
In addition to the STEM fair, the College of Engineering Employer Relations office offers the Engineers Employed series, a year-round schedule of events including resume workshops, company tours and panel discussions. Engineering students can also make appointments to speak to a career specialist.
"The STEM career fair along with the many professional development events offered by the College of Engineering and the Career Development Center is a great way for students to meet employers as well as obtain valuable professional development skills," said Henderson. "As employers make their way to campus to recruit students, we need to make sure students are equipped with the skills needed to land that internship or full-time job!"
