An exhibits hall that is shaping up to be among the largest in AAPG meeting history promises to be a highlight of this year's annual meeting in Houston, with nearly 1,000 booth spaces reserved to display the latest in technology and information services.

The Career Center, which serves as the focus for employment opportunities at the convention.

At the Center you'll find job openings, information on prospective employers, job interview schedules and posted resumés.

And convention-goers can bring their own resumés to the booth — preferably digitally — and they will be posted on the AAPG Web site.

At the Center you can also learn how to use the Internet to research different career possibilities.
