Students Grab Spotlight in October
Geoscience students once again are in the AAPG spotlight in October via three events designed to help them position themselves for jobs upon graduation.
The month starts with the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous of geoscience students and employers, held Oct. 1-2 at the University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyo.
Slated after that:
The Student Job Quest will be held Oct. 8-9 in Buffalo, N.Y., in conjunction with the Eastern Section meeting. Students will be able to meet with company representatives from several major oil and gas operations, such as ExxonMobil and Occidental Oil and Gas. For information contact Katharine Lee Avary at firstname.lastname@example.org; or by telephone, (304) 594-2331.
The ninth annual fall AAPG-SEG Student Expo will be held Oct. 9-10 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
The Student Expo is another tool for linking geoscience students with industry recruiters – a showcase for students to present their work via poster sessions, network and interview with multiple employers.
Activities at the two-day Expo include field trips, an open poster session and Icebreaker on Monday, followed by a full day of poster presentations and interview on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, there will be an informal reception where poster awards will be presented.
Expo corporate sponsors include Anadarko Petroleum, Apache, AWG, BHP Billiton, BP, Chesapeake Energy, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Core Laboratories, Devon, Dominion, EnCana, EOG Resources, ExxonMobil, Fairfield, Hess, Houston Geological Society, Kerr McGee, Minerals Management Service, Nexen, Noble Energy, Occidental, Omni Labs/Live Oak Reserves, Pioneer Natural Resources, Samson and Schlumberger.
The annual AAPG-SEG Spring Break Student Expo is slated for March 15-17, at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, Okla.
