Local colleges are joining forces to provide students and employers with opportunities to connect for employment and internship opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
Career Services staff at Caltech and Harvey Mudd College are co-sponsoring the two career fairs in October, which are also open to students from the other Claremont Colleges (Scripps, Claremont McKenna, Pomona and Pitzer). The Software and Data Science Virtual Fair is set for Thursday, Oct. 1, and the STEM Virtual Fair will take place Thursday, Oct. 8. Both fairs run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will be hosted via Brazen and will allow attendees to use video, audio or text-based chat to meet with employers one-on-one through a queueing system.
Employers will have access to potentially 4,300 STEM undergraduates from The Claremont Colleges and Caltech and 2,100 STEM graduate students from Keck Graduate Institute and Claremont Graduate University. Postdocs and recent alumni are also invited.

“With all career services being virtual this fall, we are looking for ways to connect with employers that will be beneficial for students,” says Sarah Park, director of career services at Harvey Mudd College.
Students are encouraged to have their resumes reviewed and to register on Handshake prior to the live career fairs.There are still a few spots available for potential STEM employers, and those interested can register via Handshake or contact Park at firstname.lastname@example.org.
