Students and alumni of the University of Southern Mississippi are invited to attend Careers on the Coast, a networking and job fair Tuesday at the University’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.
Hosted by Career Services, the job fair will be from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the third floor of the Gulf Coast Library.
Current and past students can network with more than 45 professionals and prospective employers from industries representative of the University’s six colleges: College of Arts and Letters, College of Business, College of Education and Psychology, College of Health, College of Nursing and College of Science and Technology.
Employers will discuss full-time, part-time and internship opportunities, along with the change to participate in volunteer or community service with companies.
Never miss a local story.
Business attire is required and Jona Burton, assistant director of career services on the Gulf Park campus, said students will get practice giving their “60-second elevator pitch” while speaking with employers. Burton said these introductions will help students establish initial relationships and navigate a room full of professionals.
The first 50 students to attend will receive a complimentary gift.
