STEM will have a hybrid offering. See here for details on the STEM In-Person Career Fair.

The STEM Career Fair, organized by the CPDC, Society of Women Engineers, and the College of Engineering, extends its invitation to all students across campus pursuing technical studies. Students from diverse academic backgrounds such as the School of Computer Science, Mellon College of Science, Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Science, Tepper School of Business, Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, and College of Fine Arts, alongside those from the College of Engineering, are welcomed. This inclusivity ensures a broad representation of interests and disciplines.

Facilitated by the Career and Professional Development Center and the Society of Women Engineers, a student-led organization, the STEM Career Fair receives steadfast support from the College of Engineering and Carnegie Mellon University, emphasizing its commitment to fostering professional development and industry connections for all students. We will use the Handshake Virtual Career Fair Platform for the event.

Virtual Platform & What is Included:
The CMU CPDC is excited to partner with Handshake to run career fairs in a virtual format. 

Upon registration, we’ll review the details you submitted for approval. At our virtual event, you’ll be able to engage with students in a variety of formats, including:

  • Video, audio, and chat communication with students
  • Group meetings with up to fifty students
  • 1:1 meetings scheduled in advance or after a group session
  • By sharing your values and documentation with students ahead of time

Note: During registration, you’ll be asked to share the number of representatives who plan to attend the fair—up to 100 representatives per employer are able to participate in the fair. Each representative you register will be able to create their own unique schedule to engage with students later this summer. To learn more about these features check out this virtual fair training webinar recording, which was hosted by Handshake.
