On Thursday, Oct. 4, from 5:30–8:30 p.m., Millersville University’s Department of Applied Engineering, Safety and Technology will host a seminar for female students who are interested in learning about careers in graphic communications or teaching technology and engineering (or STEM education). The program is geared toward high school students or Millersville University students who are undecided about their majors. The “We Want YOU!” career seminar will be held in Osburn Hall (Room 200) at 40 E. Frederick Street, Millersville. There are currently 38 young women registered to attend with 29 mentors.
Young women who are interested in learning more about careers in the graphics industry or becoming a teacher in technology and engineering (or STEM) are invited to attend. The program is specifically geared toward high school juniors and seniors, who are asked to attend with a parent or mentor. Additionally, female college students who are exploring career options can attend without a parent or mentor.
Attendees at the “We Want YOU!” career seminar will enjoy dinner, engage in a hands-on activity, and learn valuable career information. Faculty in these programs at Millersville will share information about different career paths for women in graphics and teaching technology & engineering subjects, including job prospects in both of these areas. They will explain how you can get started with a Millersville degree program to help you meet your career goals.
This seminar is free for participants and their mentors, and is being partially funded by the Millersville University President’s Commission on the Status of Women. Their mission is to foster a university climate that promotes full and equal opportunity for women to study, work, and live. Additional funding is being provided by Millersville’s Department of Applied Engineering, Safety and Technology.
