Missouri S&T students will have a chance to meet with over 1,000 recruiters at the Spring Career Fair this February. At last count 351 employers have registered for the event, a record for the spring fair.
The fair will be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, in the Gale Bullman Building on the Missouri S&T campus. The fair is open to Missouri S&T students and alumni seeking internships, co-ops and full-time positions.
“I urge all of our students to come to the fair — no matter your major, there will be recruiters looking for someone like you,” says Dr. Will Zwikelmaier, director of Career Opportunities and Employer Relations (COER) at Missouri S&T. “These employers recognize the value of an S&T education and have roles waiting for you to fill.”
According to the latest data from COER, the average starting salary for S&T graduates is approximately $74,300. Plus, Missouri S&T ranks first in Missouri and second in the Midwest for economic value, according to recent rankings from the college guide website DegreeChoices.
Attendees should download the Career Fair Plus mobile app, where they can filter employers by major and industry and plan their route through the fair. There will not be printed maps available, so attendees should plan to bring a mobile device with the app already downloaded.
Attendees should also plan to print out at least 15 copies of their resumes to give to employers, in addition to uploading their resumes to the Career Fair Plus app. COER requires attendees to adhere to a professional dress code for entry to the Career Fair. Shuttles will be available at major campus locations and dormitories.
