9 Reasons Why You Should Attend (Any) National STEM Conference

Get hyped for your latest upcoming STEM Career Fair! SASE, NSBE, SHPE, and SWE conferences all offer many great benefits.

Posted on

Let's start by asking a couple of questions... "Have you started thinking about your plans after graduation? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? What is your purpose in life?"

Them: "Now that you're an adult what do you wanna do with your life?" Me:

That's when reality kicks in...

and you lay in bed contemplating your entire life.

SAME.

Don't have the confidence to face recruiters????

FEAR NO MORE BECAUSE ALL OF THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE!!!!!!

You know it's about to get real when the hat goes backwards.

Get ready because your conference IS GONNA BE LIT!!!!!

Pack your bags. Bags on bags on bags.

1. Get away from studying for a weekend and travel with your closest friends!

... and take a break from your phone to wander the beautiful city streets.

2. Need to gain the confidence to talk to recruiters? There's a workshop for that!

3. Get Ready To Meet People. Lots of them! Networking is a Major Key to Success!

Put on your best looking suits and dresses, smile a lot, and charm everyone in your presence.

You'll leave conference having met people from all over the nation.

4. Spend plenty of time bonding with people from your region and chapter during down time!

5. Did someone say FOOOOODDDD??????

At National Conference, you'll be dining like royalty.

Suit up in your swanky attire and dine the night away at the formal dinner.

6. Keynote speakers always provide an interesting and motivational speech.

Come with an open mind and be ready to have your mind blown!

7. Hospitality suites connect you with recruiters on a more "informal" level.

*goes up to recruiter* "Sup" *does the head nod* *goes in for the fist bump*

Oh, and DID I MENTION THERE'S GONNA BE MORE FOOD??

8. Get your resume critiqued by professionals.....fo' freeeeeeee :D

9. Last but not least, the STEM Career Fair!!!!!

Tons of companies will be recruiting for intern, co-op, and full time positions! Best part? They are looking to HIRE YOU!!!!

Become so hire-worthy, the recruiter writes your name on the back of someone else's resume.

*true story*

And there's a special feeling when you land your first internship.

And when you get your first paycheck.
