DENVER, Auraria Campus – MSU Denver Career Services hosted several  career fairs and networking events for all of its majors during the Spring and Fall semesters.

On Feb. 2, around 30 employers came to the 22nd STEM Job Fair.

Students in the area of Sciences (Physics, Biology, Geology, Chemistry, etc.), Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, were able to ask questions, hand in their resumes and talk to several companies for about future jobs.

“I’ve seen students more prepared with a resume and making more questions,” said Vanessa Trahan, a recruiter from the University of Colorado Hospital.

Companies were offering entry level to more experienced positions.

Interim STEM Career Specialist Creseda Riccardi, M.S. Materials Engineering, explained that this year there were around five organizations looking for students in the Biology field.

“Students complained about not having enough companies looking for Biology careers students,” Riccardi said. “We listened and brought more for Biology students.”

These events received around 400 junior and senior students from all majors and 46 employers. [Photo: Leticia Anaya]

Riccardi said around 400 students attended and around a dozen were hired after the fair.

“I see pretty diverse kind of companies, it is a great opportunity to get your name out,” said Michael Bowers, a Geology student at MSU Denver.

On April 12, the “Job and Internship Fair,” organized by MSU Denver’s Career Services and Applied Learning Center.

MSU Office of the Career Services, has hosted several fairs and networking events during the Fall which focused on Business Careers, Spring the STEM Career Fair, Government Jobs, Networking event for Arts and Social Sciences, and Job and Internship Fair.
