S&T Fall Career Fair Announcement:
In May 2021 there was an increase, over last year, of 219% in the number of jobs posted in Handshake for S&T students. While this is to be expected given the pandemic in 2020, it is important to note that this May also held a 93% increase in job postings over May 2019 (pre-pandemic). You can comfortably take this as a clear indicator that S&T students are in high demand. Last year’s Virtual Career Fairs brought in 647 company booths (+8% from 19/20). Throughout the past year S&T’s COER has kept a finger on the pulse of the college recruitment job market. Our most recent survey of companies resulted in 30% indicating they would only recruit on-campus this year, 20% virtually only, and 22% would take advantage of both options. Many were still uncertain at the time of the survey.
The need to accommodate the recruiting preferences of companies around the world, combined with the requirement to build-in flexibility for the upcoming semester, has resulted in a brand new ‘hybrid’ format for the Fall 2021 S&T Career Fair. This year’s fair will be held over 3 days (September 28th -30th). The first two days will be traditional on-campus fairs in the Student Recreation Center at the Gale Bullman building. The number of employers will be limited each day to allow for more social distancing and a more comfortable recruitment atmosphere. On September 30, the first day of Fall break, we will hold a Virtual Career Fair. This fair will be held in the Career Fair Plus platform and students will be able to book appointments with recruiters a week in advance.
Employers are already planning multiple visits to campus, on-campus interviews, and different activity/recruitment events throughout the Fall semester. Students should be working on their resume during the summer months and should book a virtual resume review with one of the career advisors ASAP.
More specific details will be found in the coming weeks at career.mst.edu. All university policies regarding COVID-19 precautions will be followed at each event.
S&T Fall Career Fair: September 28-30, 2021. 9 a.m.-3 p.m. CDT.
