STEM Women has held 35 inspiring event for STEM students and graduate employers since 2018. These events have introduced 18,927 university students to 256 exhibiting companies. Our events are aimed at individuals who identify as female or non-binary, and the most popular courses studied by the attendees in 2020 were Computer Science and Data subjects (34%), followed by Engineering related disciplines (20%). The highest proportion of attendees were in their final year of study at university. 30,000 women follow STEM Women across our social media channels, and our events are promoted by relevant university departments, student societies and careers services.
We moved all 2020 events online in response to the pandemic, and received positive feedbacks from students and employers. Companies can engage with students via webchat, and decide which conversations get progressed to a voice or video call. They can also assign enquires to suitable representatives based on the students’ CV/bio, deliver an employer talk and take part in a panel discussion. Our favourite feature is a “sourcing” tool that enables companies to see who is active within the fair, to filter by course, and to then reach out and initiate a chat with their chosen attendees. So there’s no need to worry about a star candidate walking past the stand!
Our 2021 regional events will be marketed to students studying at a university based within a designated area and will attract employers from many different industry sectors. There will be six separate events covering London, England and Wales (excluding London), Scotland, Ireland, USA (East Coast) and the Benelux Region. We will also be running three sector specific events, aimed at students who are targeting careers within engineering, technology or financial services. All our events will provide employers with an opportunity to meet highly relevant students seeking internships, placements and graduate jobs.
We have created a Careers Portal that will enable companies to use our “job posting” and “sourcing” functions at any time. These features have been part of our online event experience, but companies will now be able to reach out to our entire community throughout the year. This will create a digital / job board option for our STEM Women employers, ensuring that they can post jobs and contact registered students whenever they are recruiting!
We can provide a bespoke careers event for your company. You can let us know your preferred course split, graduation year, geographic locations and ideal numbers. We will then invite suitable students and set up a virtual event on your behalf. Your team can then chat to the attendees, conduct interviews via video call and deliver webinars introducing your different business areas.
You can email or call us to request our event pricing, arrange a demonstration of our online portal or discuss your requirements in more depth.
