Since 1999, the Houston Student Expo has evolved into the largest geoscience student expo in the United States. It offers a unique platform for the geoscience industries and students to network while focusing on recruitment. With Texas as a major hub for various geoscience industries, the Houston Student Expo has always received tremendous support from the industries and students alike.

 

2020 was a challenge for everyone but also an opportunity to reinvent ourselves. The Houston Student Expo seized this opportunity by hosting the event virtually, but more importantly, by bringing industry diversity to students. 2020 was our first year to attract a major geotechnical and environmental company to actively recruit and present career seminars in a variety of industries. We hope to continue this momentum by expanding our efforts in the geothermal, environmental, government, CCUS, mining, renewable energy, and GIS industries.

 

What are we offering in 2021?

In-Person | Exhibition & Networking

The Exhibition will occur on the first day of the event, September 13th where students will register for either the morning session or afternoon session. The expo will begin with an ice-breaker/welcome from the organizers and event sponsors followed by 1-on-1 interaction with recruiting companies in the main exhibition hall. This is where in-person students will benefit from face-time with potential employers and sponsors will meet approximately 150 potential candidates.

Hybrid | Interview Opportunities

Sponsors will have the opportunity to get access to the student registration demographics, resumes, abstracts, pre-recorded research presentations, and pre-recorded elevator pitches to evaluate potential candidates for interviews at the event and virtually. Interview rooms will be available both days of the event, while interview booths will be set up in the exhibition hall during day two. This will give sponsors the opportunity to screen and interview a large number of candidates in a short amount of time.

Virtual | Career Seminars

In 2020, instead of providing technical content in the form of short courses, the event focused on introducing students to the variety of careers that recruit geoscience students. We will continue to provide these seminars during the second day of the event via Zoom. Like last year, the seminars will focus on the broad range of careers in the geosciences and provide students the opportunity to briefly network with professionals in those industries via the coffee hour and happy hour break-out rooms.
