Engineering and Technology Job Fair to take place on Sept. 11

Forty-three companies to reach out to students at the Reynolds Center on Wednesday.

The University of Tulsa’s Center for Career Development and Professional Engagement will host an Engineering and Technology Job Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 11 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Reynolds Center. Faculty encourage students to attend and learn more about each of the businesses offering internships and jobs, as well as interact with employers. In total, 43 companies have registered for the job fair.

Nearly all of these companies are seeking to hire for both internships and post- graduate jobs. Internships, though not always paid, allow students to explore their interests, make connections and determine their compatibility with a company. While this fair is ideal for upperclassmen seeking internships or full-time jobs, it also presents a great opportunity for freshmen to experience a job fair early in their studies.

Students should bring several paper copies of their resume with them to the fair. If students need help drafting their resume, they are encouraged to make an appointment through Handshake with the Center for Career Development and Professional Engagement (located on the second floor of Hardesty).

Engineering and computer science majors are most sought at this fair; however, employers are looking to fill positions with studies in different majors. To determine whether employers are seeking students in your major, log on to Handshake and filter by major under ‘Career Fair.’ You may also contact a career coach within the Center for Career Development and Professional Engagement by calling (918) 631-2345 or by scheduling an appointment through Handshake. Other job fairs this fall will include the Business, Government & Nonprofit Career Fair on Sept. 19 from 12–4 p.m. in the Reynolds Center and the Nursing Job Fair on Nov. 4 (time TBA) in the Oxley Health Sciences Building.

If students are unable to attend this career fair but want to learn more about opportunities for jobs and internships, they should reach out to their professors and/or consult Handshake for more information.

The Center for Career Development and Professional Engagement is hosting “Pre- pare for the Fair” events to help students ready themselves. Wednesday, Sept. 10 they are holding open office hours where students can drop-in. Food and refreshments will be available.
