Career Fair

Held typically 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.
