ASA Launches Free Virtual Undergraduate Career Fair

1 May 2020 No Comment

Spring is usually the time of year when employers engage in on-campus career fairs nationwide. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, bachelor’s degree candidates have had to suddenly depart school and are not able to access this resource. In light of this, the ASA has created a virtual career fair for students and employers.

The ASA Virtual Career Fair will help undergraduates prepare to transition from college graduate to early-career professional. Tips, dos, and don’ts for developing a résumé and cover letter, as well as putting your best foot forward during interviews, are a few features of the program.

Launched in April and running through mid-June, the ASA Virtual Career Fair is available for upcoming and recent graduates from programs in statistics, data science, and related fields. The platform is accessible to both ASA student members and non-member students.

This virtual experience allows students to upload their résumé for review, access participating employers through a built-in message service, and watch webinars from ASA leaders about topics including the following:

  • Developing a résumé
  • Job Search 101
  • Interviewing

In addition, an online résumé repository is available. The repository can be used by participants for résumé review and feedback by established ASA members and is accessible to employers who may be seeking bachelor’s degree candidates for open positions.

“These are unprecedented times, so it is more important than ever to support our student members,” said ASA Director of Strategic Initiatives and Outreach Donna LaLonde. “The ASA Virtual Career Fair is just one way we can work together to meet our mission of promoting the practice and profession of statistics. It is also a great opportunity for young grads to expand and nurture their network in the statistical community.”

The ASA Virtual Career Fair is free to undergraduate students. To register, visit the ASA’s Virtual Career Fair page.
