Calling all Penn Engineers, candidates in STEM fields, and those interested in science, data, and technology – you’re invited to the 2022 Virtual STEM Career Fair on Friday, February 18, 2022 from 11:00am-4:00pm EST!
Participating organizations are seeking current undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and recent alumni for internships and full-time opportunities! You’ll be able to see which majors and academic levels companies are looking for, as well as the type of roles they have to offer and their ability to sponsor international candidates.
The 2022 Virtual STEM Fair is open to all Penn student and alumni s served by the Career Services office. Please see the “eligibility for services” section here.
PLEASE NOTE: Student Registration begins Tuesday, February 8, 2022 at 12:00 PM EST. By registering, you will be able to sign up for Both group information sessions (30 minutes each) and 1:1 meetings between students and representatives from each organization (10 minutes each). In order to attend any of these group or 1:1 sessions, you MUST register in advance of the event (beginning at the above date/time), AND sign up for each group session and/or 1:1 session you’d like to attend. Space for the 1:1 sessions is first-come, first-served based on how many individuals are sent to represent the organization (anywhere from 1 to 15 representatives per organization), so it is to your advantage to be prepared in advance and register for your selected sessions as early as possible.
See these step-by-step details on managing your registration and signing up for sessions for additional information.
After you register for the event, be sure to update your Handshake profile and complete the following tasks:
- Be sure to complete all fields in your Handshake profile including job and industry interests.
- Set your profile privacy setting to “Community” or “Employers” (otherwise you won’t be able to sign up for sessions).
- Make sure the basics of your profile are accurate, including graduation date, school year, major, GPA, and work authorization. Employers can decide who is eligible to meet with them 1:1 based on these indicators, so be sure yours are correct! If you have not yet declared a major or concentration, feel free to add your intended choice. Dual degree students should be sure to manually add in your second school, as only one school automatically transfers into Handshake.
