Attention AAPG Student members (especially those student members who are looking for a job):
Have you placed your resume, PowerPoint presentation or video on the Virtual Student Expo site?
If not, why not? Now's the time.
The Virtual Student Expo is the newest addition to the AAPG Student member benefit package, providing you with a site to showcase yourself to companies in the energy industry.
Student members of the AAPG, the Geological Society of America, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists or the Society of Petroleum Engineers can post resumes, slide presentations and examples of their work -- including academic assignments, technical papers and portfolios from internships, or even a short video of themselves explaining why a prospective employer might want to hire them.
This service is free to Student members of any of the professional associations. Potential employers pay a small fee to review the student postings and/or post their job openings.
Employers reap benefits from the VSE by pre-screening potential candidates in a cost-effective manner prior to selecting them for an interview. The process is intended to result in more productive interviews between students and employers when the employer visits the campus during recruiting season -- or at another AAPG Student Expo event.
Currently over 460 resumes have been posted to the VSE, and a number of employers already are taking advantage of this unique resource.
Perhaps you just need to know where to visit to begin using this service. For employers please visit: http://vse.virtual studentexpo.org/post.cfm
At this Web site you can set up your company account and view the different packages offered, post an ad or peruse the resumes and other information that students have supplied.
AAPG Student members using the site first must login to the "Members Only" area of the AAPG Web site:
Next, look for the Virtual Student Expo logo, click on it and you can begin setting up your VSE account and posting your information.

Happy job searching!
