Government & Non-Profit Expo

The Government & Non-Profit Expo at Georgetown University is coming up on February 13th! Many non-profits and government agencies cannot afford to come here to the William and Mary campus to recruit students. We've partnered with 4 other universities to host a big career fair featuring employers just in the government and non-profit sectors. This is your opportunity to make contact with some really interesting organizations to whom you might not otherwise have easy access. We are still recruiting employers; see who is attending so far:

This event is happening in D.C. on the Georgetown U. campus. For those who need a ride up and back, reserve one of the 20 seats available by completing this form and bringing your non-refundable $40 deposit to the Career Center by Feb. 10th. On this same form, you can also access the rideshare board if you’d prefer not to take the bus or the train.
