POSTED ON NOVEMBER 9, 2011:
Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology will host the 3rd Annual "Women in Technology" event on Friday, Nov. 11 from 10am to 2pm on the OSUIT campus. The event will expose participants to the excellent career opportunities for talented women interested in high-paying, technology-driven fields.
Prospective students will engage in activities and demonstrations to better understand the academic and skill requirements for career opportunities available through OSUIT. In addition, various industry representatives will be in attendance -- the same people who hire OSUIT graduates.
Those who attend will select a "career track" which will pair up academic areas based on the similar skill sets and abilities required to succeed. This method will allow participants to be introduced to high-paying, stable careers that a female student might not typically explore.
