We also support opportunities with major tech companies, positions with small and midsized firms, as well as careers with government agencies and non-profits. Demand for expertise in STEM is predicted to increase employment, so join the Science & Technology Community to connect your interest in investigation and inquiry to real-world opportunities.
General Industry/Job Search Timeline
Tech: Larger firms typically recruit beginning in early-mid fall semester with many organizations, including small and mid-size, opening positions later into fall and even through the spring and summer
Science: Most companies seeking out students for research & university labs recruit between Jan-May for a summer or fall start. Many summer research programs recruit between December-March, so students should begin preparing for these positions as early as the fall semester.
