The GACE (The Georgia Association of Colleges and Employers) career fair is held each spring in Atlanta, and features major employers from around the state who are recruiting for recent and upcoming graduates.

Each semester, Career Services conducts seminars on Resume Writing Skills, Successful Interviewing Skills, and Career Fair Preparation.

You will be able to polish your interview skills and learn the "do's" and "don'ts" of a successful career fair by attending these seminars.
