3. Volunteers needed for Environmental Career Day

Dear Students,

The Graduate Environmental Students Association (GESA), Toronto
Undergraduate Geography Society (TUGS), and the Environmental Students Union
(ENSU), are working in collaboration with the University of Toronto's Centre
for Environment, to organize our 7th annual Environmental Career Day on
THURSDAY, MARCH 7th, 2008 at the St. George Campus. The event will be held
in the Great Hall, Hart House from 10am to 4pm.  The primary goal of this
event is to introduce public, private and non-profit organizations to
undergraduate and graduate students.  This year some 30 organizations and
companies from government, design, business, ENGO and law sectors will be
advertising career opportunities and accepting resumes.  For the students
who are not actively seeking employment right now, this is a great
opportunity to learn more about working in environment-related fields.

We would like to invite you to attend this event and also to ask for your
help.  We will need volunteers on the day of the event to assist with
various tasks such as technical support, exhibitor and student sign-in,
setting up booths and cleaning up.  If you could spend an hour or two
assisting us on the day of the event it would be very much appreciated.

For those of you around over the lunch hour, there will be a free lunch, and
there is a reception at the end of the day to which you are invited.

If you would like to volunteer this year, or have any questions, please
e-mail us at careerdayuoft@xxxxxxxxxx
