Companies Recruit Students for Careers in Social Good
For some students, the job hunt is not just about being gainfully employed, but also about finding a position that uses their talents and skills to make a difference. In that case, the Social Enterprise Career Fair is the place to look.
On Tuesday, Feb. 9, Enterprise to Empower (En2Em) will host the annual Social Enterprise Career Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Klaus Atrium. More than 20 organizations will be recruiting, including KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools, Peace Corps, and Care USA.
Undergraduate and graduate students of all majors are welcome to attend the career fair.
“This event is unique because not only does it give students the opportunity to find real-world job experience, but you get to work for organizations that are committed to making the world better,” said Katrina Reeves, vice president of digital marketing for En2Em.
The event is now in its fifth year and is one of the few of its kind in the nation that puts a focus on careers doing social good.
“Everyone at Tech is searching for a new way to improve the world, and this event brings all of this intellect and passion into one space with professionals who have the same goal,” Reeves said.
As at other career fairs, students should plan to wear business attire, bring copies of their resumes, and research companies ahead of time if possible.
In addition to En2Em, the fair is held with the support of the Center for Career Discovery and Development, Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship, Social Enterprise Alliance in Greater Atlanta, and Georgia Tech Engineering for Social Innovation.
