Missouri S&T will host the 2021 Fall Career Fair 9 a.m.-3 p.m. for three days: Tuesday, Sept. 28, Wednesday, Sept. 29, and Thursday, Sept. 30. Here is what students need to know:

When and where?

To allow for more social distancing and fewer people in an area at one time, the fair will be held over three days instead of the typical one-day fair. The first two days (Tuesday, Sept. 28, and Wednesday, Sept. 29) will be held in-person in S&T’s Student Recreation Center and the third day (Thursday, Sept. 30) will be held virtually through the Career Fair Plus app. The fair will run 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day and 95% of the companies will be different each day of the fair. 


Students and alumni can access all three days of the fair using the Career Fair Plus mobile app. On the app, you can filter by day, major and industry to plan your route using an interactive map with details about each company. Attendees should bring their mobile device to the fair; printed maps will not be available. The virtual day (Thursday, Sept. 30) will be by appointments only. Students and alumni may start booking appointments at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, through the Career Fair Plus app or at  

What to wear?

Professional dress is required. Missouri S&T offers a career closet on the third floor of Norwood Hall to provide students with professional attire for Career Fairs, job interviews and employer networking events. Approximately 500 students use it each year. Get details at

Anything else?

Remind attendees to bring printed copies of their resume to the in-person fair and upload their resume to your Career Fair Plus profile. This is very important. Employers won’t contact individuals for follow-up questions or with employment offers if they don’t have their contact information.  

What about COVID?

All attendees to the career fair will be required to wear facial coverings, regardless of vaccination status. Handshaking is highly discouraged. There will be one-way traffic in the gym and hand sanitizing stations throughout. Employer booths will be separated by curtains. 

If someone planning to attend the fair has COVID-19 symptoms on that day, they are encouraged to not attend the fair and instead contact for information on alternate ways to connect with employers outside of the fair. 

Is that it?

Yes, pretty much. To sum up: attendees should download the Career Fair Plus app, build their profile, upload and print their resume, look at attending companies and map their route, prepare a power introduction and wear professional clothing to the event.
