Career Day

The UNCG LIS Department has two career day events each academic year one in the Spring semester and another in the Fall semester.  Career Day will give you a chance to attend panels with professionals from a variety of information agencies and ask them questions.  We also have a job seeker panel where our graduates discuss the job search process.  You can attend Career Day either in-person or online.

The next Career Day is September 10th, 2014, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  Please click here for more information.
