The Community & Human Services Career Fair helps to connect students in Psychology, Sociology, Social Work, Women’s Studies, and Counseling with employers looking for interns, volunteers, or permanent employees. It is a smaller fair with only 20-30 organizations who will be present, but it is very focused for students looking to go into the human services profession or nonprofit sector.

This event will be on Wednesday, April 10, from 2-5pm in the UC Hamilton Room.
