AFS Encourages Students to Participate
Student Reception — All Aboard the Portland Spirit!
Student/Mentor Lunch & Career Fair
There will be a student/mentor luncheon followed by a “job fair” on Tuesday 12:00 – 2:00 pm (Portland Ballroom #252 at the Oregon Convention Center). During the luncheon, students will have an opportunity to meet and network with professionals who will provide occupational information and career advice. The job fair will provide a setting for employers to meet with prospective job seekers.
Once you’ve registered for the meeting, please take our Student/Mentor survey to let us know that you are participating and what kind of mentors you’d like to talk to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K5ZJK66
