Job Fairs / Career Events

 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
Registration for our Virtual Spring Job Fairs is now available! 

EMPLOYERS:  Due to COVID-19 our hybrid schedule will continue during the spring 2021 semester. The semester will be split into two "mini semesters" allowing for social distancing and access to limited on-campus housing. During the first 8 weeks, half of our students will be on-campus in labs for hands-on learning while the other half is at home completing theory and general education courses remotely. Midway through the semester, they will swap places for the second 8 weeks. During this time, no one is permitted on campus other than faculty, students, and some staff.  Details and registration information is as follows:

  • We are utilizing Brazen for our Virtual Job Fairs this spring. 
  • Students from All program majors will be included in BOTH job fairs - half of the students will be attending the February event and the other half will be attending the March event (in theory - there are some exceptions). 
  • For example, we have 4 Electrical Technology classes – two classes will be learning remotely during the first 8 weeks of the semester and will attend the February event. The other two classes will be learning remotely during the second 8 weeks of the semester and will attend the March event. It is the same scenario for all program majors except for a few that will be remote for the entire semester. They will likely choose one or both events to attend. 
  •  Spring 2021 Hybrid Schedule:  see here for a list of all program majors and which Virtual Job Fair they will likely be attending
  • Once you register for one or both job fairs, we will send you information on how to log into Brazen to set up your employer booth.
  • Students will be attending prep-sessions (just like they did for our "on-campus" events) to make sure they have everything they need and are prepared to "e-meet" you. 
  • While we know this is not perfect (it's a first for us, too) and we would MUCH RATHER see you all in person, this will have to be the "next best thing" for now.  We will give the virtual job fairs our very best effort to make both events worth your effort and time. Our students are excited to meet with you!
