Career Fair to Target STEM Opportunities

Published on November 04, 2013 by Larry Crippen

Students hoping to launch a career in one of the science, technology, engineering or mathematics fields can meet with potential employers during the Sam Houston State University Career Services’ inaugural STEM Career Fair on Tuesday, November 5th.

Representatives from 15 STEM-related industries will be available to talk with students and alumni about internships and full-time jobs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Lowman Student Center Ballroom.

According to the National Math and Science Initiative, STEM job creation over the next 10 years will outpace non-STEM jobs significantly, growing 17 percent, as compared to 9.8 percent for non-STEM positions.

In addition, college graduates make 84 percent more, overall, over a lifetime than those with only high school diplomas, and earn higher wages than their non-STEM counterparts.
