PhD and Master’s Virtual Career Fair: February 19, 2013
The Graduate Career Consortium (GCC) is proud to be sponsoring the first PhD and Master’s Career Fair exclusively for the GCC. Kerry Landers, the assistant dean of Graduate Studies and a member of the Consortium, is excited to sponsor this event. Through the Fair, graduate students, post-docs, and alumni have another job searching opportunity.
Applying for jobs is a daunting prospect. By this stage, we have probably all done it before, and it really does not get much easier. Sometimes we need that bit of help.
Here is where the PhD and Master’s Virtual Career Fair can help. The fair opens on February 19th. It provides you with the opportunity to meet and chat with potential employers online. The advantages here are numerous—you can ask any questions you want from the comfort of your room, lab, or the library. Moreover, you do not have to stand in line to meet representatives from organizations, neither do you have to worry about not getting to speak with everyone. The virtual career fair gives you the opportunities that physical career fairs bring, but with further convenience.
There will be over thirty organizations present over the duration of the fair. Online chat times vary. The earliest starts at 9 am, and the last ends at 7 pm. Check out the website for the full schedule and updates. The PhD and Master’s Virtual Career Fair is a great opportunity to help you make the next move in your professional life. Landers, as your Assistant Dean, strongly recommends that you take part!
