Explore Your Interests and Advance Your Career at Our Grad School Fair
“The best information about what you love
is in your last contact with what you love.” – Bales and Orland.
Maybe you’ve known since you were eight years old that you wanted to become a teacher, an entrepreneur, or an international traveler. Or maybe you were a “late bloomer” and didn’t realize what you loved until your AmeriCorps service. At the AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fair on May 19, you’ll be able to explore opportunities to study what you love and browse schools from across the country without having to leave your home or office.
Register for the May 19th grad fair to talk one-on-one with graduate school recruiters looking for their next class of passionate and talented students like you.
