Careers on the Coast Job Fair
It’s called Careers on the Coast, a networking and job fair at the Southern Miss Gulf Park campus that will be held on Tuesday, March 7th.
The job fair provides current and past students of Southern Miss the opportunity to network with more than 45 professionals and prospective employers from several industry representatives.
Employers will be on hand to discuss internship opportunities and students can participate in volunteer or community service with select companies. Assistant Director of Career Services Jona Burton said, “We will have a lot of students graduating in May. This is a critical opportunity for them, but we also want to encourage students who just started this semester that haven’t yet figured out what their future goals are. They may meet a contact. They may meet someone to help them develop that. So, we encourage students to look at this as a great time to possibly meet mentors as well, folks in the field they can use as guides and support as they move forward in their career development.”
Students that want to participate should dress in business attire. The event will be from 4:30 to 7 on the third floor of the Gulf Coast Library in Long Beach.
