On March 15th, at the Bank of America Career Services Building, Penn State Extension, the SAFES Institute, and its Agriculture and Environment Center are partnering to host a "Careers in Conservation" job fair and panel discussion.

The event will feature federal and state agencies, engineering and consulting firms, conservation districts, and non-governmental organizations all looking to hire interns and full-time positions.

The job fair will run from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm. Students are encouraged to bring their resumes in exchange for a ticket to a free pizza lunch from 12:30 to 1:15 pm and to interact with prospective employers. At 1:15 pm, join us for a panel discussion featuring conservation professionals from NRCS (USDA-National Resources Conservation Service), DEP (Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection), Team Ag and the Centre County Conservation District for insight on preparing for a career in conservation. Students from all colleges and academic units across the university are invited to attend as their schedules allow.
