Pathways to Public Service Career Fair

Fall 2018 Pathways to Public Service Career Fair is on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018
3 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Sacramento State, University Union Ballroom I

The Pathways to Public Service Career Fair facilitates opportunities between organizations in federal, state, and local governments to engage with students and alumni interested in exploring and pursuing opportunities in the field. This event is designed for government industry organizations to recruit full-time, part-time, internship, or volunteer positions. Students from all major departments will be invited to attend the event. Participants include majors from all class levels, alumni, and community members. The focus of the Pathways to Public Service Career Fair is to assist all participants to learn about experiential learning opportunities, as well as gain knowledge of the government field from professionals in the industry. The Career Center encourages all students to begin their research of the government industry well before they graduate and begin their job searches. Therefore, you will see potential candidates, as well as those seeking information about your organization and services.
