The Career Center will hold its annual Nonprofit Volunteer and Career Expo Feb. 16 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Tate Student Center. With more than 100 nonprofits registered to attend, the expo is designed to raise awareness of the spectrum of volunteer, internship and career opportunities available in the nonprofit sector. This year’s event is sponsored by the UGA Career Center, Volunteer UGA and Opportunity Knocks, a division of the Georgia Center for NonProfits.
Through the Nonprofit Expo, students learn that they don’t have to be social work majors to work for a nonprofit organization. Marketing, public relations, finance and education are among the very broad set of skills for which nonprofits are looking. The expo provides an opportunity for students to get acquainted with nonprofits and talk about mutual interests. A list of this year’s expo participants is available at www.uga.edu/career.
