Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

Recapped: Tri-College & STEM Recruiting Day

What an event! Last Friday, the Career Offices of Haverford, Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore hosted a tremendous event in the field house: Tri-College and STEM Recruiting Day. Employers from STEM fields, non-profits, finance, education, and many other fields came to meet and hire Tri-Co students. Students arrived dressed in their best professional attire for morning registration and the career fair. After a brief orientation and an opportunity to take a professional headshot for their LinkedIn profiles, students reviewed the list of employers who had open interview spaces that afternoon. They then made their way to the career fair and chatted with employers to learn more about their companies. If they were interested in being considered for an interview later that day, they would share their resumes. The career fair wrapped up in the afternoon and employers submitted their picks to the career center staff during lunch. The remainder of the day was then dedicated to interviews! We had LOTS of students pick up additional interviews during the career fair, so the schedules were packed! All in all, the day was a great success! Happy employers and happy students make for happy career center staff! We hope to see you next year!...
