U of M 2019 GIS Career and Networking Fair Recap

Posted By Webmaster, Thursday, March 7, 2019

The GIS Student Organization at the University of Minnesota is very grateful for the support of MN GIS/LIS in our 18th Annual GIS Networking and Career Fair event. This event seeks to bring together students interested in a career in geospatial technologies with local GIS industries and organizations. We had over 100 participants representing a wide range of academic departments and schools. We also had attendees from multiple nearby universities and over 20 representatives from local GIS industries and organizations. 

The fair offered an opportunity to connect with potential employers, resume reviews by participant vendors, a student poster competition, and provided free professional headshot photographs. 

The event also featured three guest speakers: Sam Klimoski, GIS Coordinator in Technology and Communications at the City of St. Paul; Eric Shook, Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Society at the U of M-Twin Cities; and Sharvari Sangle, GIS Developer at SRF Consulting Group and MGIS 2016 Alumni.

We were able to meet our goals with the energetic assistance of volunteers from GISSO and strong support from the MN GIS/LIS Consortium Event Grant, and our partner academic and professional organizations.
