WVU Tech to Host Area Employers for Engineering and Sciences Career Fair

Students interested in careers in engineering and science will have an opportunity to connect with regional employers during the WVU Tech Engineering, Technology and Sciences Career Fair October 21-22.

The event will welcome area employers to meet with students and alumni to discuss employment and internship opportunities. Employers will host booths on Wednesday, October 21 and Thursday, October 22 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the first floor of the Engineering Laboratory building.

“We want to ensure that our students are able to put the education they’re receiving here into practice,” said WVU Tech Dean of Students Richard Carpinelli. “That translates to professional development and networking opportunities outside of the classroom. It is important that we showcase our students so that employers are able to experience first-hand how valuable WVU Tech students are in the workforce.” 
Carpinelli said the fair is open to all students, including those who are simply curious about regional job opportunities.

“Career fairs like these also serve as valuable opportunities for students to explore career options and fine-tune their job-seeking skills. Many of our students are able to find full-time employment through these fairs even before they graduate,” said Carpinelli.

Job-seeking students can also visit the Student Life website to explore career resources, including interview and cover letter writing tips, helpful websites and job listings.

The event will connect students to the following regional employers:

Wednesday, October 21
American Electric Power
Neff, Longest & Beam
CDI Engineering
Reynolds American

Thursday, October 22
American Electric Power
Federal Corrections – Beckley
Joint Warfare Analysis Center
