Princeton's annual Science and Technology Job Fair features representatives from nearly 100 companies. The next fair will be held Wednesday, October 2, 2019. Company recruiters should check back in late June for further information and registration details.
More than 1,000 people typically visit the fair. The visitors are largely undergraduates, but also include graduate students and post-doctorate researchers. The event, held annually since the 1980's, is co-sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Office of Career Services.
Organizations such as Microsoft, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and Schlumberger return yearly, while others are first-time participants. All of the companies offer full-time positions, and some offer summer internships. Most of the positions cater to students majoring in science, engineering, and math, but recruiters are open to hiring students from a wider array of academic fields who have quantitative and analytical skills.
Company representatives typically give out flyers and souvenirs, answering questions ranging from how their interview process works to what they enjoy most about their jobs.
