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.
