Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers are growing sector in the workforce. The preparation to pursue a STEM career starts prior to a student’s arrival on a college campus; academic preparation and career exploration can begin as early as middle school. In this workshop, we will discuss STEM career exploration and the path that a student should take at each educational level (middle, high school and college) to pursue a career in STEM.

Resumes are an important tool for sharing your professional expertise with the colleges, graduate schools and potential employers. Your resume should be tailored to the opportunities that you would like to pursue.
