WHAT YOU MIGHT CONTRIBUTE

During this event there will be time for both indepth discussion, networking and mentoring.  All exhibitors are highly valued as professionals with much insight to share.

 As a professional, we hope you will participate in two opportunities that engage our participants:  

  1. Facilitated small group discussions in the morning to develop a) the top three messages to employers and b) the top three messages to prospective job seekers.   
  2. Networking lunch: On the theme, “Telling your journey”, we invite you to share your career journey with the students you will be with.  Students will be advised to take the lead to ask questions. We want to encourage students to feel comfortable talking with professionals, something they may have limited experience with.   
  3. Lead a mini-workshop for career-building.

If you are interested in leading a mini workshop, please contact us ASAP at ecologyplus@esa.org with a title, a 40-word description and presenter contact information. Spots are limited! Topics of interest include, but not limited to: 

  • Interview tips 
  • Building your resume 
  • Grad School 101 
  • How to match academic skills with employer expectations

 

While this is a FREE event, we request that exhibitors: 

  1. Bring items for door prizes for your table. We will provide raffle tickets that can be used for the drawings.  
  2. Provide one item, suggested value of $30 – towards a set of grand prizes to be given out at the end of the career fair.  Please send an email to ecologyplus@esa.org with details about what you are able to contribute by February 10.
