Shannon Berge Academic and Career Advising Center

The Academic and Career Advising Center is pleased to invite students to the Educator Job Fair, scheduled for Thursday, March 26th from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. in the Kate Buchanan Room. This is a great opportunity for HSU students interested in working with youth to network with school districts, education services, and agencies looking to recruit for full-time, part-time, internship, and volunteer positions. Some schools have been known to hire on the spot, so it is recommended that students “dress for success” and bring copies of their resume.

For a quick resume review before the event, students may stop by the Academic and Career Advising Center’s Drop-in hours in Gist Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Please call 707.826.3341 for more information.
