Good Works Internship and Career Fair

This fair focuses on the internship, career, and year of service opportunities offered by community agencies.  In order to facilitate the recruitment of students early in the spring semester, this event has been set to coincide with the timeline for Houston's ExxonMobil Community Summer Jobs and Shell Non-Profit Internship Programs.  While some agencies may be recruiting for summer volunteers, all participating agencies at this event will have employment or internship opportunities.

 Monday, February 24, 2014
12:00 - 2:00pm
Rice Memorial Center (RMC) Grand Hall

Please contact Kelly Windham, Community Involvement Center Assistant Director, at kellywindham@rice.edu or 713-348-6044 with any questions.
