Virtual STEM Fair January 26

Weber State University's Virtual Career & Internship Fair is happening on Tuesday, January 26th from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. through Wildcat Handshake.

THE BAD NEWS: Virtual fairs have shown lower employer registration and student attendance.

THE GOOD NEWS: Less competition and more opportunity to get connected with hiring managers, even if it’s BEFORE you NEED an internship or job because 70%-80% of the best job opportunities are not posted online. The personal contacts are the most effective means of getting hired.

Here is a list of the employers attending this fair that are hiring EAST students for full / part-time positions and internships (see the spreadsheet attached for a full list of employers specifically seeking your majors).

 

  • ARUP
    Auto Owners Insurance
    Biofire Diagnostics
    Bonnell Aluminum
    Cache Valley Electric
    CRH (Staker Parsons)
    Go Health
    HHI
    HAFB
    Northwestern Mutual
    Pentalon Construction
    RC Willey
    The Home Depot
    United Way

Virtual Spring Career and Internship Fair – 2021

In a land where the pandemic continues, not so far, far away….

 FAQ and answers

Q: I am not graduating this semester. Should I attend?
A: Most jobs and internship opportunities are for summer and fall 2021.

 

Q: Should I attend if I am only a freshman or sophomore?
A: Yes! This will not come around again until Fall 2021 semester. This is a GREAT opportunity to get connected with companies and learn about them, possibly find entry-level jobs at companies that also help pay tuition if you are in a STEM-related major, and get more comfortable with the networking/job fair process.

 

Q: Do I need to have a resume for the event?
A: Yes, of some kind that shows your background and allows for some relevant talking points. However, if it needs updating or some polish, you have 2 options:
1) Send it to me before January 21st to review

OR

2) Let the recruiter know you are in the process of updating it and what would be the best way to get the new version to them within the next day or 2 (no longer than that – they may forget who you are).

 

Q: What if I have issues trying to access the event or meet the recruiters?
A: We will have tech support folks (myself included) to help you! Technology will not let us fail!

 

Q: I’m sold! What do I need to do to attend?


A: Easy peasy. Here are your steps:
1)    You MUST register to attend on Handshake, located in your eWeber portal AND select employer sessions in order to engage with and talk to recruiters. Do this ASAP before the time slots fill up! Some offer group, individual or both types of sessions. REGISTER HERE.
2)    Sessions are 10 minutes each for individuals and up to 30 for groups. This will vary by employer. Be selective (using the handy dandy spreadsheet I sent on Monday…or…the one I attached below in case you lost it).
3)    Sessions are inaccessible until 5 minutes prior to the one you are scheduled to attend. At that time, a green box will appear (you may need to refresh). Click on that and you will be invited into a virtual room.

University of Alabama Research Experience

The University of Alabama (UA) REU, Engineering Sensors Systems and Signal Processing for Speech Pathology, is a recruiting 9 students for a 10-week summer research opportunity between the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Communicative Disorders! This multidisciplinary program runs from May 26 through July 30 and offers research opportunities for students from engineering (electrical, computer, biomedical, mechanical), computer science, and related fields (physics, math) to engage with research challenges with a clinical focus on speech pathology challenges. Speech language pathology is an applied behavioral science whose scope of practice includes screening, assessment, treatment, and technology/instrumentation related to the areas of fluency, speech production, language, cognition, voice, resonance, feeding and swallowing, and auditory habilitation/rehabilitation.  Available research projects for the summer will allow participants to work on interdisciplinary problems requiring image analysis, building circuits, sensor design, algorithm development, collecting data from participants, and information processing. 

 

As a part of this program students will be mentored by both engineering and speech pathology faculty, shadow clinical practice at the Speech and Hearing Center in Tuscaloosa, attend/present a local conference on Speech Pathology, participate in cultural trips in the state of Alabama, have social activities with other REU groups and graduate students in speech pathology.  We offer a competitive stipend ($5000), housing on the UA campus, and both a travel ($750)/meal ($500) allowance for all participants accepted to the program.  We are currently planning for this program to be in-person but may transition to virtual depending on recommendations by federal, state, and university health officials.  But we will keep applicants up to date on all program decisions as quickly as possible.

 

Students DO NOT need to have prior research experience to be competitive for our program.  We understand that completing courses during the academic year can leave little to no time for to explore research.  Major goals of our program are to provide students with their first experiences in research to help build your technical skills and figure out if a research career (and potentially graduate studies) is a good fit.  In the application, students have the opportunity to explain why this program is exciting for them and how it will help with future career or education goals.  These application pieces play a major role in how we evaluate and select participants for the program.

 

The complete details of the program (projects, benefits, eligibility, and support) and application are online at: http://reu.eng.ua.edu/programs/engineering-sensors-systems-signal-processing-speech-pathology/

 

While the application deadline is March 15, 2021 applications will be reviewed as they are received, so we recommend getting them in early!  If you have any questions about the program, please reach out to the program coordinator: Dr. Todd Freeborn (tjfreeborn1@eng.ua.edu)
