For senior Roger LeBlanc, George Mason University’s Green Job Networking Fair could make all the difference. The environmental sustainability studies major plans to attend the Nov. 10 fair to network and take career notes—maybe even land a job—in a growing field.
“As a graduating senior I need all of the extra advice and practice talking to employers I can get,” he says. LeBlanc thinks increased interest in volunteering and interning, and green careers in science, communication, government, engineering and other fields are all contributing to the expansion of Mason’s sustainability program.
George Mason’s Office of Sustainability and University Career Services are teaming up to hold the second annual Green Job Networking Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday in the Johnson Center’s Dewberry Hall on the Fairfax Campus. Students, alumni and the public are invited to meet major employers including the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and environmentally friendly businesses and nonprofits.
