The 2024 BEYA STEM Conference is a distinguished national conference which provides a forum for high-achieving STEM students to learn, interact, and build professional networks with industry leaders. The conference, which is attended by over 10,000 participants, offers K-12 students, college students, corporate, government, military professionals, business, and industry employers with days of learning, networking, celebrating excellence, and showcasing STEM career opportunities.

Throughout the years, BCC students have relished the chance to interact and establish connections with business leaders, corporate executives, engineers, scientists, innovators, and peers from various academic institutions nationwide.

The Jobs Certification Program, part of the Career Communications Group (CCG) College Program, offers 18 hours of essential skills training for students transitioning to the workplace. The program is now online, allowing students to receive certification before the conference and become eligible for scheduled interviews with participating employers. The Jobs Certification Program focuses on in-depth and interactive soft-skills workshops, covering topics like interpersonal skills, critical thinking, interview skills, business etiquette, and team building. Students receive a certificate of completion, valuable for their resumes and LinkedIn profiles. Employers at the conference recognize this certification, fast-tracking students for scheduled interviews.
