WVU recognizes the importance of providing students with real-world opportunities to gain experience and kick-start their careers.
As a result, WVU Career Services has created a customized approach to help employers find the right students for internship, full-time, and part-time opportunities.
The next STEM Career Fair will merge with the Agriculture and Natural Sciences Career Fair and be held as a two-day event to maximize insights from student and employer feedback and recruiting data.
The new format will better support employer recruiting needs and encourage student engagement with all attendees, as many student majors overlap across multiple industries.
