STEM Ambassadors: Illuminating Careers - virtual careers event

From 1 - 5 March, as part of National Careers Week, the STEM Ambassador Programme is running an online virtual careers fair in partnership with AECOM and the STEM Ambassador Hub at the Science and Industry Museum.

Update: the link for the virtual careers fair is now online, using this link: https://stem.exhibition.app/illuminatingcareers/.

We will be joined by 25 national employers showcasing careers in a variety of sectors from healthcare to engineering, and finance to research. STEM employers include: Public Health England, BBC, RAF, JustEat, IBM, Google, AECOM and more. This is a fantastic chance for students to be inspired and meet STEM Ambassadors from a wide variety of STEM organisations, with an exciting opportunity to chat live and ask their questions and gain insight into careers in STEM industries. 

The virtual environment will be split into five zones to help students find your way around and navigate their career choices:

  • Building the Future
  • Digital
  • Energy and the Environment
  • Lifestyle and Health
  • Travel and Security
