Online Careers Events is helping women into STEM careers.

The moves comes as the coronavirus health crisis makes it impossible for companies to meet, interview and recruit new candidates.

Yet at the same time, another year of students are set to graduate and many of them will be actively searching for job opportunities amid the chaos of COVID-19.

Now STEM Women have launched Weekly Online Careers Events, which will be held each Wednesday in April.

Sophie Chadwick, Events Manager at STEM Women, said: “It’s important for us to continue providing ways for women studying STEM subjects and working in STEM industries to access support, career opportunities and be part of a wider inspiring community.

“Employers are still keen to meet top talent, and women are still keen to understand what a career in STEM can offer them.

“This will be our first event taking place online, which is exciting.

“We are able to run these events once per week on a Wednesday afternoon, meaning more networking can take place than ever before.

“These events can serve women working in a wide variety of locations too, as they don’t have to travel to our venues.

“We are creating these events in collaboration with employers, students and women working in STEM, in order to create a unique service that works for everyone.

“I’m confident that our communities will adapt to online careers events and continue to support each other. I’m excited to see what we can achieve when we collaborate online.”
