Atlanta Career Fairs
Students and alumni have the opportunity to participate in two career fairs in Atlanta. These career fairs are typically in November and April of each year and provide job seekers with an additional opportunity to meet employers who might not be able to travel to campus.
Professional attire and resumes are required for these events. Students and alumni can make an appointment with a career adviser prior to the event by calling us at 478-445-5384. You can also attend a Resume Review Day in 132 Lanier Hall the Monday before the event. We can also review resumes via email for graduate students and alumni outside the Milledgeville area.
