Many organizations coming to UNG Career Fair March 7
(Feb. 15, 2013) Nearly 80 organizations have registered to attend the UNG Career Fair scheduled for March 7, providing an excellent opportunity for students looking to network with recruiters and learn about career options.
The organization registered include federal and state agencies, non-profits, summer camps, graduate schools, information technology companies, and many other businesses.
“In this day of electronic recruiting, it is important that students take every opportunity to distinguish themselves from the crowd by this kind of in-person interaction,” said Dora Ditchfield, director of Career Services. “Often students think you must be a senior to attend these events, but there are also employers seeking part-time summer help or interns, and graduate schools are interested in speaking to juniors and underclassmen as well.”
Ditchfield also said job-seekers should be willing to consider all employers, not just those whose name they recognize.
“There are a tremendous number of excellent companies and organizations whose names are not household words, so be sure to consider all of them,” Ditchfield said.
There is also a preparatory workshop and résumé review scheduled to help students prepare for the Career Fair. The workshop, Career Fair Basics Workshop, will be held on Feb. 28, at 12:45 p.m. in room 332 of the Stewart Building. The résumé review will be held on March 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in room 333 of the Stewart Building. Résumé examples can be found at www.ung.edu/careers, under the ‘Tips by Topic’ heading of the ‘North Georgia’ tab.
Professional attire is required during the Career Fair, and résumés are strongly encouraged. The event is open only to UNG students and alumni.
