A total of 130 employers will be on West Virginia University’s Evansdale Campus to take part in the 2014 Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources Career Fair today and tomorrow (Sept. 17-18) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Engineering Sciences Building.
Recruiters from those companies and governmental agencies will travel to campus to hire interns, co-ops and upcoming graduates. Current students should attend, and alumni are also welcome, as some companies will have openings for experienced candidates.
“WVU’s engineering, safety, and computer science students have an excellent reputation in industry which attracts recruiters from companies across the country.” said Sarah Rotruck Glenn, assistant director of the WVU Career Services Center. “Our students are smart and hardworking; employers know they’ll find top talent at WVU.”
Many companies will also be recruiting for non-engineering positions, such as finance, human resources, chemistry and geology.
WVU students and alumni who plan to attend should research the companies in advance, since there will be 65 different employers each day. Professional attire is required.
