From the Liberal Arts Career Center representatives

Instead of sending over every opportunity we have once we see it, we are going to send it all in a weekly email to see if that helps students read the information (and our amazing advisors distributing it as well!). We are going to have an optional listserv that individuals can join so they get the information immediately, and we are going to put all academic advisors in the listserv so that you still get our updates and can forward the information as appropriate as well. We are going to send a bulk email request encouraging students to sign up in the next week, and we encourage you to let them know to join as well! It is for all Career Related events and opportunities that LBAR students qualify for. We welcome any students, staff, and faculty to join the listserv. They can join the listserv by emailing me at jzenn@tamu.edu their TAMU email address.
