The 8th Annual Public Service Career Showcase, provided opportunities for students of all majors to learn about careers in the public sector. Representatives from non-profits, government offices and agencies related to health, human and social services shared information about career paths within their fields and recruited students for internship, volunteer and paid positions. There was a 60 percent increase in student attendance at this year’s Showcase compared to last year’s.
The November Showcase was hosted by the College of Health and Public Affairs, UCF Career Services and the following student organizations: Organization for Public Administration, Master of Public Administration Student Association, National Student Speech Language Hearing Association, Health Services Administration Student Association and the Bachelor of Social Work Student Association.
Both participating students and employers appreciated the opportunity to network and remarked on the need for events focused on careers in the public sector.
