63 EMPLOYERS TO ATTEND LARGEST RECRUITING EVENT IN CAMPUS HISTORY / 1999 SDSM& T CAREER FAIR SET FOR SEPTEMBER 13
Sixty- three companies and agencies are registered to participate in the 1999 SDSM& T Engineering & Science Career Fair, which is shaping up to be the largest employer recruiting event ever held on the South Dakota Tech campus. SDSM& T’s Career Fair will be held Monday, September 13, from 9: 00 a. m. - noon and 1: 30 - 4: 30 p. m. in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom. There is no charge for individuals to attend.
“ The Career Fair provides SDSM& T students with an excellent opportunity to discuss career options and network with a wide range of companies and agencies,” says Darrell Sawyer, SDSM& T Director of Career Planning, Placement and Cooperative Education. “ These employers recognize the quality of education offered by South Dakota Tech and are coming to campus to recruit our students for full- time, co- op and summer internship positions.”
Within six months of graduation, more than 90% of SDSM& T students are either working in their career fields or pursuing graduate/ professional degrees. Starting salaries for last year’s South Dakota Tech graduates average above $ 41,600 for engineering majors and $ 40,400 for science degrees.
Participants in this year’s Career Fair include several South Dakota employers, many first- time exhibitors, and Departments of Transportation from five states-
Minnesota, Missouri, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming. A sample of the companies attending includes Cargill, Caterpillar, Daktronics, Green Tree, Hewlett Packard, Hutchinson Technology, IBP, Martin & Associates, Maytag, Microsoft, Midcom, Minnesota Corn Processors, Raven Industries, Raytheon, Rockwell Collins, 3M, and UPS. A complete list is available on SDSM& T’s Career Planning web site at: www. sdsmt. edu/ services/ careerplan.
Over 1200 individuals attended SDSM& T’s Career Fair last year. For additional information, call Darrell Sawyer, Director of Career Planning and Cooperative Education, at 394- 2667.
