Nov. 7: Government Career Fair at Rhode Island College (RIC)


Your Opportunity to Meet with Agency Representatives
11/7/2013 2:00 PM - 11/7/2013 5:00 PM
Rhode Island College - Donovan Dining Center Ballroom

Students and alumni of the University of Rhode Island are encouraged to attend the sixth Government Career Fair. Federal, State and Local Agencies will be on-hand to discuss their openings nation-wide.

WHAT IS THE GOVERNMENT CAREER FAIR? A free networking event, co-sponsored by URI Office of Career Services and Employer Relations, where you will be able to explore careers available with various government agencies. Each employer has a table in the Rhode Island College Donovan Dining Center Ballroom to displays information. Employers have a sign and number, so you may either walk around and visit all the tables, or identify, in advance, those agencies that interest you most. Bring plenty of resumes and dress appropriately to meet with agency representatives. Dress professionally.

WHO CAN ATTEND? Everyone is welcome! The Government Career Fair is open to all students, (undergraduates and graduate students) and alumni. The University of Rhode Island Office of Career Services and Employer Relations is committed to equity and diversity and welcomes all members of our community.  All current college students and college graduates are welcome to attend.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND? If you miss the event, you will miss a great opportunity to meet in person with the agencies represented. In addition, you will need time to make important decisions. Employers know that smart students START EARLY!

IS THE FAIR ACCESSIBLE TO INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES? The Rhode Island College Donovan Dining Center Ballroom is fully accessible to persons with disabilities and interpreters/guides are welcome!

DO I NEED TO RSVP TO ATTEND THE FAIR? No, you are not required to rsvp to attend. However, a printed name badge will be available at the registration table on November 7 for those individuals who rsvp no later than November 1.
A list or registered employers will be updated regularly to include new registrants.
