Missouri S&T students seeking full-time employment after graduation or co-op or internship for the semester will have an opportunity to meet with employers at the 2018 Spring Career Fair on Tuesday, Feb. 20. More than 230 companies are registered to attend the event, a 16 percent increase from last year’s spring Career Fair.
Career fairs are held during the fall and spring semesters at Missouri S&T, but employers visit the campus year-round for interviews. This semester, 91 rooms have been reserved for on-campus interviews. A total of 1,133 different employers are recruiting from Missouri S&T this spring, which is a 230 percent increase from last spring. And 2,429 jobs have already been posted online by the career opportunities and employer relations (COER) department at S&T. Multiple positions may be included in one job posting.
Missouri S&T students looking for full-time employment, co-op and internship experiences are registered with COER. The average starting salary for undergraduates with Missouri S&T degrees is over $65,000. The average starting salary for graduate students is over $80,000.
“The Career Fair is one of our largest networking events that we hold each year,” says Julie Pittser, director of COER at Missouri S&T. “It provides students the opportunity to meet company representatives, learn more about the organizations and make a positive first impression before ever even applying or interviewing for a position.”
The Career Fair is open to Missouri S&T students and alumni between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20. Missouri S&T faculty and staff are allowed to attend 8-9 a.m. or 2-3 p.m.
