University-wide career expos offer Roadrunners skill-building opportunities

BACK TO CLASS


SEPTEMBER 12, 2022 — This month, UTSA students and alumni will have a chance to explore the internships and job opportunities available at dozens of premiere companies at two career expos hosted by the University Career Center (UCC).

Both events will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. on September 14 and September 16 in the H-E-B Student Union Ballrooms (HSU 1.104/1.106), and provide Roadrunners with the opportunity to connect with employers seeking to fill internships and full- and part-time job positions.

The STEM Career Expo on September 14 will focus on career and internship opportunities in science, tech, engineering and math. The following week, on September 21, the UCC will host the All-Majors Career Expo.

The upcoming events mark the UCC’s first in-person career expos since February 2020. This year’s events will feature more than 80 employers—including Accenture Federal Services, USAA, Enterprise, H-E-B, the National Security Agency (NSA), Circle K, Colliers Engineering & Design, Dell Technologies, HDR Inc., Marathon Petroleum Company LP, Pape-Dawson Engineers Inc. and Tata Consultancy Services.

Both events are open to UTSA students and alumni. Faculty members also are also welcome to attend these career fairs in order to meet recruiters and stay current on employment trends.

Tips for the Career Expo:

  • Dress The dress code for these events is business casual.
  • Review these cheat sheets for the STEM Career Expo and All Majors Career Expo to research the companies that will be attending and the positions they are seeking to fill.
  • Bring plenty of copies of your resume and update your LinkedIn profile.
  • Remember to access the services of the UCC, which include exploration and planning, résumé/cover letter/CV review and job search assistance—all of which are available via in-person and virtual appointments.

The learning opportunities the expos provide to the entire Roadrunner community align with UTSA’s Classroom to Career Initiative, which enables students to participate in experiential learning opportunities including internships, service learning, undergraduate research and study abroad to gain the hard and soft skills in demand by employers.

These programs provide students with a greater understanding of marketable skills needed in the workplace and are particularly important in linking classroom success to life after graduation for historically underserved populations.
