With the 2019 Fall Career Fair less than a week away, there is no time like the present to begin to prepare. Missouri S&T’s career opportunities and employer relations, COER, has you covered. In addition to the plethora of programs, functions, and seminars that are usually hosted, COER has several new events and deals that will help students get hired.
Last Sunday was the Suit Up event that has been hosted in the past. Similar to previous years, the event took place at JC Penny where students could come and receive a 40 percent discount on select professional wear as well as several prizes and drawings. Today is the last day of the Resume Blitz, where students can bring their resumes to COER in Havener to have professionals review and critique them without an appointment; and it is the first day of Conquer the Career Fair, a session in Norwood 305 that helps teach students the best tips and tricks. Conquer the Career Fair will take place Wednesday through Friday of this week. Next week the fun really begins to heat up with the Miner Mingle on Monday at 5:00 pm. Miner Mingle is a brand new event where many employers who will be at the career fair the following day have a chance to network in a casual setting. Resumes are not allowed due to the fact that the idea of this event is not to receive an interview or get a job, but to get students names out to the employers. This event is also designed to give companies a chance to see what students, faculty, departments, and design teams have been up to at Missouri S&T recently. All of this culminates in the biggest event COER puts on each semester, the career fair. 330 of the nations top companies will be at Missouri S&T in the Gale Bullman Multipurpose Facility from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Tuesday, September 24th. These companies will be hiring students from all different majors here at S&T and will be looking for interns, CoOps, and full time employees.
COER will also host an etiquette dinner on October 15th. The dinner is a five course meal where the fundamentals of proper dining etiquette will be reviewed. This is a fantastic way to learn about the minutiae that goes into dinners with prospective employers and is open to all Missouri S&T students. The cost is $15 to RSVP, which covers half of the cost. The remainder of the cost is payed for by COER. Reservations to this event are due by October 7th. Missouri University of Science and Technology is a school that is focused on ensuring that its students have a successful career once they have left its hallowed halls. COER is one of the departments that helps with that goal more than any other.
