OCPD Events and Descriptions
Eagle Expo is one of the largest career fairs on campus hosted each semester, this event features approximately 100 employers from a wide variety of industries. There’s something for everyone at this fair—participating employers seek students from all colleges and majors. Eagle Expo is usually held late September and late February on the Statesboro Campus.
Education Career Fair
This fair grows year-by-year, and now features over 50 school districts from all around Georgia and neighboring states. If you’re interested in teaching or counseling in a particular district or county, this is the place to start! This fair is currently held on both Armstrong and Statesboro’s campus. Check the above event list for specific information concerning each campus.
Graduate School Fair
If another degree is in your future, don’t miss the best place to speak with graduate school admissions representatives in one place! Held early each year to accommodate application deadlines, this fair brings together representatives from universities throughout Georgia and the surrounding region.
Spring Career Fair
This is the last career fair of the academic year allowing students one more opportunity before summer to connect in person with employers regarding internships, co-ops, and full-time career opportunities. The Spring Career Fair is held annually on the Armstrong Campus.
STEM Career Fair
The STEM Fair is a career fair featuring employers in the STEM fields searching for candidates to fill co-op, internship, and full-time positions. Students in the College of Engineering and Computing and College of Science and Math (COSM) won’t want to miss this fair. The STEM Career Fair is held each September and February on the Statesboro Campus.
Focusing on the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) industries, these events are usually held near the beginning of each semester, in early September and early February. STEM Night brings employers together for a panel discussion and information sessions, designed to help students understand the value of co-op and internship experience and how to best prepare themselves to become top candidates. STEM Night is held on the Statesboro Campus.
Information Sessions & Tables
Throughout the semester, recruiters come on campus to meet students and share information about their companies. Information sessions are presentations given by recruiters to groups of students, usually in the evenings. Some companies choose to set up information tables throughout the day in high-traffic areas, like the Union or in your college’s lobby area. Visiting there is a great way to connect with employers and learn what they look for when hiring brand new graduates.
These dates are being added all the time, so be sure to keep an eye out for information. Attending these sessions will put you one step ahead of the competition!
Résumé Boot Camp
These workshops, held throughout the semester usually 1 – 2 weeks before a major career fair on campus, give students the opportunity to “drop in” and quickly have their résumé reviewed by a Career Development Specialist without making an appointment. Bring a résumé you’ve already created or start from scratch, and these professional staff members will help you define your experiences to best sell your skills to potential employers.
