Want an exciting summer internship? Looking for employment after graduation? Then make plans to attend Mizzou Engineering’s Fall 2022 Career Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22, at MizzouRec.

“Even if you’re not sure what you want to do, this is a great opportunity to explore internship and post-graduation options,” said Anh Nguyen, career services coordinator. “Hiring managers from some of the top companies and engineering firms in the country are coming to campus because they want to meet with students and hear about their interests and professional aspirations. This is really a chance to network with leaders in the field.”

More than 220 employers are attending this year’s Career Fair, including representatives from industries such as Burns & McDonnell, ARCO, Garmin, Emerson and Tradebot and governmental agencies such as the Missouri Department of Transportation and U.S. Armed Forces.

“These companies are very interested in hiring Mizzou Engineers because they know our students have had or are going to have incredible leadership and research experiences and are getting a top-notch engineering education that teaches both foundational skills and technical know-how,” Nguyen said. “CEOs and hiring managers often tell us they’re looking for well-rounded individuals who have had experiences both within and outside of engineering. They know Mizzou graduates will exceed their expectations.”

While Mizzou Engineering’s is the largest career fair on campus, it’s not the only one engineering students can attend. The Trulaske College of Business, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, School of Health Professions and other colleges and schools on campus also host career fairs that allow engineering students to explore internship and employment opportunities in related fields.

“That really gives Mizzou Engineering students an advantage, as it exposes them to a wide array of career options,” said Emily Bozich, corporate relations and professional development specialist. “It’s just one of the benefits of being on a campus that has so many different disciplines, most of which have some connection to engineering.”
