SUNY ESF career steps include fashion and dinner

Where do I go from here?

(Syracuse) – “Where do I go from here? How do I find a job? What graduate school should I look at? Who do I talk too? Should I dress up for the interview?” Questions SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) will answer with Career Steps which includes a series of workshops, job fair, fashion show and an etiquette dinner organized by the Office of Experiential Learning beginning February 9, 2006.

“We want our students to have the best chance possible to move on from college in the direction they want,” said John Turbeville, Coordinator of ESF Experiential Learning.
