Green Career Day 2.0
Updated: Apr 26
Heard the news? On May 6 and 7, the Green Office is hosting its second career day (sign up here)! With everything that’s going on, networking has become increasingly difficult. However, especially in the final years of studying when decisions about future career plans have to be made, it is more important than ever. In order to connect students who have an interest in sustainability and business to like-minded employees working at sustainable businesses or on sustainable policies, we are hosting our second Green Career Day.
Here is a brief overview of just some of the companies who're presenting:
