New York City, Jul 27, 2021 / PRNewswire/ — Vault/Firsthand today announced the first of many virtual fairs to come with their Women in STEM Virtual Career Fair, to be held on Tuesday, August 24. Next-generation digital services and consulting company Infosys will be the title sponsor for the event, the registration for which is now open to students seeking careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
“The Women in STEM career fair is very much in keeping with our mission to democratize careers for the full spectrum of students,” said Fredrik Marø, General Manager of Vault/Firsthand. “We hope to give women more opportunities at pursuing careers that have often been difficult for them to break into.”
Women in STEM Can Connect with Industry Leaders
The Vault/Firsthand Career Engagement Platform offers a community of employers, experts, and alumni who can help mold a bespoke approach to a student’s career, connecting the dots between education, career goals, and the steps necessary to achieve them. Students who are interested in authentic, meaningful opportunities to connect with companies committed to hiring women and providing fulfilling careers should register early for the chance at preselection and personal interviews.
If not selected, students may still drop resumes at employer booths and will enjoy panel participant sessions, keynote speakers, reviewing employer booths, resume building sessions, and other professional development opportunities.
Featured Speaker, Maya Ajmera
All attendees can take part in the featured Fireside Chat with Maya Ajmera, President and CEO of Society for Science and Publisher of its award-winning magazine, Science News.
