IUP Spring Career Fair, Volunteers Needed

**Volunteers needed!**
IUP Spring Career Fair on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex.

Volunteers are needed anywhere from 8:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., and they’ve had students work for one hour up to three or four – whatever fits their schedule. Volunteers help place employer information flyers on the booths, help employers unload their supplies from their cars, escort employers from the registration table to their booth, in some cases park their cars, etc. Business casual/neat & clean attire is preferred.

Assisting at these types of events is an excellent opportunity for students to interact with employers and educators, and perhaps have the opportunity to tell them about IUP and the Honors program.

Please contact Jan Shellenbarger at jans@iup.edu if you are interested in helping with this event.
