Career Center Update

The University of Georgia Career Center

Hello from the College of Education Career Consultant

I hope this email finds you in the midst of a great Fall semester. As the Career Consultant for the College of Education, I wanted to update all Kinesiology Faculty on some of the upcoming programming and events specifically for Kinesiology majors (Athletic Training, Sports Management, Exercise and Sport Science and Health and Physical Education). I appreciate your partnership in promoting these events to your students. If you have any suggestions or ideas for ways in which we might partner in the future, please let me know!

Thank you,

Whitney Prescott
