UW Will Host 11th Rocky Mountain Rendezvous Job Fair
September 5, 2012 — The 11th annual Rocky Mountain Rendezvous (RMR), one of five regional job fairs sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Society for Exploration Geophysicists (SEG), will be Sept. 21-24, at the University of Wyoming Conference Center and Hilton Garden Inn.
The RMR offers an opportunity for geoscience students from across the United States to visit with oil, gas and environmental industry representatives, and showcase their work. Close to 200 students have attended in recent years, and approximately 25 companies are expected this year.
Participating companies support a number of activities, including field trips, short courses, resume and interviewing workshops, technical poster presentations, receptions and dinners, as well as formal interviews.
Chevron, Shell, ExxonMobil, Anadarko, Encana Oil and Gas, BP Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Marathon Oil, Hess Corporation and Schlumberger will be among the companies with representatives at this year's RMR.
AAPG is one of the world's largest professional geological societies. SEG is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the science of geophysics and the education of exploration geophysicists.
