Natural resources career fair set for Thursday

Students at the career fair get to talk with potential employers. In 2008 Ellen Trainor (now a SNRAS alum) visited with a representative from BP at the career fair.

Twenty five employers will represent the natural resources, fisheries and sciences fields at a UAF job fair Thursday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wood Center.

Contacts from federal, state and private employers will be on hand to discuss employment and internship opportunities. Students and job-seekers attending the Natural Resources, Fisheries and Sciences Job Fair will learn what qualities, skills, education and experience employers look for; the wide range of possible educational, employment and internship opportunities available, and whether or not a graduate degree is helpful in a particular field.

Some employers will be conducting interviews for summer internships after the fair for UAF students and alumni.

The event is sponsored by UAF Career Services, UAF Alumni Association, College of Natural Science and Mathematics, School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences and the School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences.
