Fall STEM Expo week of Oct. 5

The Fall 2020 STEM Expo goes virtual this year, Oct. 5 through 9.

The event by the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at Youngstown State University is open to all current STEM students seeking internships/co-ops, research opportunities and full-time opportunities, as well as all STEM-related alumni seeking new opportunities.  

This year’s Expo will rely more heavily on Handshake, the career-based database utilized by the STEM College. Students and alumni will upload a resume into the database, build a profile, register for each Expo day and then register for individual or group sessions. Employers from private, non-profit and government sectors are invited to participate to recruit and fill available internship/co-op, and full-time/entry-level STEM positions. Registered employers also can still promote their company with a display table.  

Although the Expo is being held virtually this year, the STEM College is providing space on campus for students and alumni to conduct 1:1 sessions and/or group sessions.  For 1:1 sessions, students and alumni will report to Stambaugh Stadium, Floor P. Check-in is in the President’s Loge, and 1:1 sessions will be in the DeBartolo Stadium Club. Anyone who would like a quiet space on campus to participate in group sessions, should report to Stambaugh Stadium, Gymnasiums A-C. Check-in is in Gymnasium A and 1:1 sessions will be held in Gymnasiums B and C.  For Group Sessions, participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and headsets.
