Job Search, Career Fair & Interviewing Help

Hello Everyone,

The semester has started off quite busy, if I must say so myself! In light of this, I wanted to be sure I reached out to my students to be sure they received as much career help from me as possible despite my full appointment schedule.

In this email I will include employers that are seeking to connect with you at the Spring Career Fair (yes, you should go!), interview tips and resume help.

Kind Regards,

Laura Garcia

The Business Professionalism Certificate (BPC) is a series of programs offered by the UGA Career Center to train students on professional etiquette, job searching and other career development concerns that will impact your success in your future career.


Previous BPC participants said:


“Great program because it's information we are missing in the classroom.”
“I enjoyed learning about a topic that was so important for our current job search.”
“I liked that you brought in a real professional and had her tell us what companies wanted...”
“We walk around thinking we know everything about careers and school, but we actually don't know much. It was nice to get good information and tips regarding my future.”
