This is a great opportunity for graduate students to develop and hone their public speaking skills.

The theme of this year’s symposium is effective communication. You can chose to present in one or more of the three different sessions: 15-minute presentations, 5-minute presentations, and a poster session.
We are the Harvard College Conservation Society, and we would like to invite you to attend our Job Networking Fair on Saturday March 5th, 2016. The purpose of this fair will be to connect Harvard University and other Boston-based students interested in careers in conservation with each other, and with scientists and conservationists from NGO’s such as the Nature Conservancy, Conservation International, the Oceanic Society, and Women for Wildlife.
The fair will have three major components:
- Talks and panel discussion centered around presentations by women from the ‘Women for Wildlife’ network, accomplished biologists and conservationists, and representatives from major international NGO’s.
- Discussions in small classroom-type settings, for students Boston-wide interested in pursuing jobs or summer internships in the conservation field.
- A networking lunch with information distribution for groups interested in giving out contact information and or work application opportunities.
