Quinnipiac University’s School of Computing and Engineering will host the Connecticut Manufacturing, Engineering and Technology Career Fair from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5.
The fair, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the People’s United Center, 305 Sherman Ave.
“Job seekers from the community are welcome, as are high school students and families who would like to learn more about career opportunities with our vital technical employers in these 21st-century career pathways,” said John Bau, director of career development at Quinnipiac.
Over 50 employers have registered for the event. Those seeking jobs and internships are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes to share with employers.
Quinnipiac received financial support through the state Manufacturing Innovation Fund, which was created by Gov. Ned Lamont to strengthen Connecticut’s manufacturing sector.
The fair, which is being presented in partnership with the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology (CCAT) and ManufactureCT, has been endorsed by Paul Lavoie, the new state Chief Manufacturing Officer who will attend the career fair.
“As a cooperative effort with multiple organizations, this is truly a statewide event that has allowed for easier coordination with other Connecticut colleges and four-year schools,” said Bau, who also serves as the chairman of the manufacturing committee for the Connecticut Career Consortium. We have invited colleagues and students from Connecticut’s community colleges. The grant is also allowing us to provide transportation for students from UConn as well as from some of the schools along the I-95 corridor such as the University of New Haven, Fairfield University and Housatonic Community College,” Bau added.
