Focusing on the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) industries, these events are usually held near the beginning of each semester, in early September and early February.  This fall, STEM Career Events will bring employers together for a panel discussion and information sessions, designed to help students understand the value of co-op and internship experience and how to best prepare themselves to become top candidates. There may be limited opportunities for in-person STEM Events. Please contact our office at employerrelations@georgiasouthern.edu for more information.

 

Information Sessions & Tables

Throughout the semester, recruiters come on campus to meet students and share information about their companies.  Information sessions are presentations given by recruiters to groups of students.  Some companies choose to set up information tables throughout the day in high-traffic areas, like the Union or in a specific college’s lobby area.  Visiting there is a great way for employers to connect with students majoring in specific areas of interest.
