Career Opportunities to Host STEM, Health Care Online Career Fair

VALDOSTA – The Office of Career Opportunities at Valdosta State University will host its third annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and Health Care Online Career Fair April 1-7.

A free service, the STEM and Health Care Online Career Fair is an opportunity for area employers or recruiters to market current or upcoming part-time, full-time, internship, or cooperative education openings in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health care fields to VSU students and alumni.

The STEM and Health Care Online Career Fair is also an opportunity for students and alumni pursuing or holding bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees in applied mathematics, astronomy, athletic training, biology, chemistry, clinical-counseling psychology, communication disorders, computer information systems, computer science, dental hygiene, environmental geosciences, exercise physiology, health care administration, marriage and family therapy, mathematics, nursing, physics, psychology, social work, and sociology to upload a resume and share their skills, interests, and talents with potential area employers or recruiters.

“The STEM and Health Care Online Career Fair is a great opportunity to bring employers and job seekers together online,” said J. Kevin Taylor, associate director in the Office of Career Opportunities. “The participating employers may not travel to campus due to a limited travel budget or taking time away from the office, so the online fair offers a free alternative.”

Interested employers or recruiters are invited to register for the event between now and April 7.

Students and alumni are encouraged to visit the online career fair several times throughout the week as the list of participating employers or recruiters could potentially grow with each passing day.

VSU’s Office of Career Opportunities strives to provide career development and awareness, experiential learning/cooperative education, and professional employment opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students and alumni. Its staff collaborates with the university’s employer and community partners to develop the employment potential of students and graduates and to utilize their innovative, intellectual talents.
