Hey companies! Want to hire young geologists? This
idea is for you, too.
The next AAPG/SEG
Spring Student Expo, designed to be a network meeting place
for geoscience college students and potential energy industry employers,
will be held March 14-15, 2003 at the Sarkeys Energy Center at the
University of Oklahoma in Norman, Okla.
The spring expo is an outgrowth of AAPG's successful
annual Fall Student Expo, which was started in Houston five years
ago. Both events bring company representatives together with students
for the goal of recruiting young people into the energy industry.
The 2002 spring expo attracted over 100 students
majoring in geosciences-related disciplines attending from 37 colleges
and universities, representing 18 states, as well as Canada and
The 2003 spring expo, now sponsored jointly by AAPG
and SEG, also provides an opportunity for students to showcase their
work in poster format and to network with industry representatives.
This expo will provide another opportunity for employers
from small to mid-size companies to interview potential summer interns,
part-time or full-time employees. Also, larger companies who formally
recruit on campuses each fall are offered an additional opportunity
to recruit future potential employees. Energy-related organizations
and companies also will have the opportunity to host exhibit booths
and network with students.
Company personnel will be able to informally talk
with students during an icebreaker the evening of March 14, as well
as during the poster session and more formal onsite interviews on
March 15. Sponsoring companies will be provided with student resumé
and abstract books in early March to help plan tentative interview
The expo's hosts are the University of Oklahoma Sarkeys
Energy Center, the School of Geology and Geophysics, and the Oklahoma
