Oil & Gas Companies, Mines STEM Students Discuss Careers

The Ben Parker student center at the Colorado School of Mines was a sea of engineers in suits Tuesday morning as hundreds turned out for the school’s fall Career Fair. The event featured more than 230 companies and organizations looking for new talent.

One recent master’s graduate said the event was “packed.” “It opened at 9:30 this morning and there were lines of people out the door.”

Oil and gas had a strong showing at the booths and resume drops packed into the CSM gymnasium. Companies ranging from supermajors and independent E&Ps to midstream operators, refiners, and analytics firms were present to discuss career development with students from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds.
