CareerFEST 2018

CareerFEST kicks off on Tuesday (Sept. 4) under the CareerFEST tent, located between the EERC and Chem Sci buildings.

Faculty members are encouraged to support career development at Michigan Tech by announcing CareerFEST events in class and by offering in-class or extra credit to students who attend.

To help students better prepare for recruiting season and Career Fair, Career Services offers a month-long series of industry-sponsored events and career development workshops on campus.

Students can explore industries, discover careers and meet employers during Industry Days, which are offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday in September at the CareerFEST tent.

“I started networking with companies early and went to as many Industry Days as possible,” stated Matthew Rudy, electrical engineering alumni ‘18. “Recruiters knew me by name at Career Fair.”

CareerFEST also offers events that help students improve their resume, interview, and job search skills throughout September.

The complete schedule of CareerFEST events is available online.
