Considering your future in: Business School? law School? Medical School? Graduate School? Meet recruiters at the 2019 Graduate and Professional School Fair September 23, 2019 11 am to 2 pm in Squires Student Center Commonwealth Ballroom Hosted by the Graduate Student Assembly and the VT Office for Recruitment and Diversity InitiativesWelcome

The Graduate Student Assembly would like to welcome all students  to our annual Graduate and Professional School Fair (Monday, September 23rd, 2019, 11:00am-2:00pm, Squires Commonwealth Ballroom).  This event is free and open to all, regardless of your major, academic year, or current plans for the future. This is an opportunity for you to meet and connect with recruiters from different schools and programs. Learn about your options for graduate and professional schools, as well as what the application process involves.

Why should I attend?

It never hurts to explore your options! This free event attracts representatives from over 100 graduate and professional schools every fall, so if you are still in your first few years, you can attend multiple times to help set yourself up for success in the application process. At the 2019 Graduate and Professional School Fair (GPSF), you will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with recruiters to: explore admissions requirements and funding opportunities; collect information that you can review later; and network with people who know the ins and outs of their application process.

How can I prepare?

Start by answering this short survey and RSVP’ing!

Great question – it’s exciting to start thinking ahead and planning on how to present yourself to recruiters. The Graduate Student Assembly is working with the Career and Professional Development office to host a prep session on what to expect from a graduate fair, as opposed to a career fair. This prep session will only be offered to those who RSVP via GobblerConnect. We will also be hosting various graduate students panels, with representatives from different parts of campus.

RSVP on GobblerConnect for our Tuesday, September 17 session

But I have more questions!

The GSA Exec Board would love to know what those questions are – email us at gsa@vt.edu and we will get back to you; if enough people have the same questions, we will likely add that to this page!
