APSU hosting career fair for students in STEM fields

2/11/2013

            CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Austin Peay State University College of Science and Mathematics will host a career fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 27, in the Morgan University Center Ballroom. The event will allow students to meet with regional employers to discuss career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

            According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM workers “drive our nation’s innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries. Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs. STEM workers are also less likely to experience joblessness than their non-STEM counterparts.”

            Students are encouraged to dress in business attire and bring a resume to the event. The career fair is sponsored by the APSU College of Science and Mathematics, Career Services, the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Center of Excellence for Field Biology.
