The Encounter General Information

The Encounter is an internships & part-time jobs fair sponsored by the VSU Office of Career Opportunities. It is open to VSU students of all majors, freshman through graduate level.

The mission of The Encounter is to connect local employers with the talented workforce enrolled at VSU while providing experiential learning opportunities for our students. This is the first time The Encounter has been held at VSU, but on average over 500 students visit the Office of Career Opportunities each semester to find part-time employment or internships.  

We are excited that you want to participate in the first-ever Encounter. This is a FREE event open to local employers from the Valdosta area and on-campus departments who wish to participate. Due to the size of the location, space is limited to 25 employer tables. We encourage employers to register early to ensure space availability.
