NEXT DAY INTERVIEWS

 

Career Fair

Held once each semester, fall and spring, the South Dakota Mines Career Fair connects over 1,300 students with 152 employers (about a third from South Dakota, the rest from across the United States).  Many employers recruit on our campus every year, but each Career Fair also sees new participants looking to recruit South Dakota Mines job seeking students.  Many employers conduct next-day interviews with students.

More Information for Employers

Registration is now open for our SD Mines Virtual Spring 2021 Career Fair that will be held on the Handshake platform on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021 from 11am to 4pm MDT. Considering the challenges and the economic impact that COVID-19 has had, we have decided to waive all registration fees and again make our virtual career fair a free event for all employers and vendors that participate. 

Please know that we understand a virtual career fair isn’t the perfect alternative to an in-person fair. However, the safety of our students and campus partners is our top priority as well as ensuring access to all. We greatly value your partnership and look forward to connecting you with our students and alumni this spring! To learn more about a virtual career fair, check out the various information articles and videos here.
