Career Center holds South Campus expo

The Career Center will host its second annual South Campus Career Expo Feb. 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the concourse of Stegeman Coliseum. The expo was developed through a partnership with the Career Center, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the Warnell School of Forest Resources and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.

“The Career Expo is designed to highlight careers and internships in such science-related industries as engineering, food, nutrition, green, natural resources, forest resources, agriculture, environmental and poultry,” says Christie Sanders, career consultant for agricultural, environmental and forest resources at the Career Center.

The expo is open to all UGA students. The Warnell School will host “Career Week” prior to the event to provide students with an opportunity to hone their job search skills. Employers will be setting up interviews after the expo at the coliseum and the next day at the Career Center.

“We regularly receive calls from companies who are looking for engineers,” says Tim Foutz, undergraduate coordinator of biological and agricultural engineering. “The fundamental nature of our engineering program and the comprehensive education offered by UGA make our graduates very attractive on the job market. Students who take advantage of this Career Fair will be in a position to locate the type of entry-level job needed for a successful career.”
