ESF Hosts Environmental Career Fair
Several hundred students attend
SYRACUSE - More than three dozen potential employers came to showcase what they do and discuss career opportunities with ESF students at the Environmental Career Fair Feb. 27.
Several hundred students made their way through the crowded aisles in the Alumni Lounge to speak with representatives of large and small private companies as well as government employers.
Senior Forest and Natural Resources Management major Steven Woods took the opportunity to meet with representatives from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
"I really want to be a DEC officer," he said. "I'm a hunter and fisher and want to stay with something I enjoy. The career fair is definitely a good opportunity to meet with employers."
The career fair allowed students to explore internship and employment opportunities with a wide range of employers. Companies represented included engineering, biological science, landscape architecture, resource management and various other profit and not-for-profit employers in the environmental sciences.
Many of the companies present were represented by ESF alumni. Patrick Costello, landscape architecture '05, is now a project designer for Appel Osborne, a full-service landscape and site engineering firm.
"This is a good place for students to talk to us," he said.
The Environmental Career Fair was sponsored by ESF's Office of Career and Counseling Services and Syracuse University's Career Services Network.
