A Message from Veronica McManamon
Greetings to all,
This current year has just zipped by and 2018 is fast approaching. The annual Opportunities Fair was well attended this year by our many vendors who come offering job opportunities for our students. There was a mix up on dates this year and not as many fourth-year dental students were able to attend. This is something we try to avoid, but this year it was out of my hands.
I know some of the fourth-year students were disappointed, but I do forward opportunities to the students and I post the listing on the board as well as online. I also encourage the underclass students, first-year through third-year, to attend. It is never too early to plan for job placement, because those four years go by very quickly. We had a good attendance of those students this year and I hope this trend continues.
Next year, the scheduling conflict should not be a problem. I schedule the fair three years out in an effort to avoid conflicts. The Opportunities Fair is on the calendar for 2018, 2019 and 2020. I make an effort to plan the event around home Cornhusker football games. The Opportunities Fair in 2018 is slated for Friday, September 28, the Friday before the home game with Purdue at Memorial Stadium.
Watch for registration information next summer in early August.
