Career Services Policy for Jackson School of Geosciences Alumni
Effective August 2013
During the first four weeks of the semester our appointments are reserved for currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students. Alumni of the Jackson School of Geosciences are more than welcome to make appointments after this time period.
Career services are available to our alumni free of charge for an unlimited time. Alumni may seek assistance for career counseling, resume reviews, cover letter writing, job search strategies, and interviewing skills and they may attend the career fairs. However, on-campus interviews will be limited to current students only and alumni may only apply to positions on GeoSource that are aligned with the degree received at JSG. For example, alumni who are pursuing a higher degree (than the one they earned at the JSG) at another institution are not eligible to compete with current students for interviews or job opportunities that are available on-campus.
