The USGS was once again well represented for the third consecutive year at the University of South Florida (USF)'s Geology Alumni Society's Job Fair. USGS representatives included Sandy Kinnaman (hydrologist, Altamonte Springs), Barclay Shoemaker (hydrologist, Miami), Noreen Buster (sedimentary geologist, St. Petersburg), George Kish (hydrologist, Tampa), Nicole Elko (coastal geologist, St. Petersburg), and Chris Langevin (hydrologist, Miami).

The focus of the job fair was to expose students to the professional opportunities they face upon graduation. Many exhibitors collected rsums, conducted preliminary interviews, or scheduled formal interviews. That approach was inappropriate for the USGS, however. Our goal was to educate the students about the diverse opportunities offered by the USGS. We provided information on how to search for Federal jobs, including specifics on the Online Automated Recruitment System (OARS) used by the USGS, the different types of scientist employed by the USGS, and the different types of employment offered, including career-conditional appointments, term appointments, and contracts.
