Full Description

Everyone knows the Zoo employs zookeepers and veterinarians, but they also have accountants, maintenance workers, retail and food service, horticulturalists, administrative positions and much more.  Students will have the chance to meet Zoo staff from different areas of the Zoo who will recommend college programs, discuss how volunteering, interning, and related work experience can give you an edge over other students and explain what they do in their day-to-day job duties.  The more you know about what positions exist at the Zoo, the easier it will be for you to plan your course of study and land that dream job.  

The Career Awareness Days are FREE of charge and open to the public.  Please RSVP to help staff gauge attendance.

Upcoming dates: January 15, 10am-12pm and February 14, 2pm-4pm
