**Attention GaTech biotechnology graduate students**

The GaTech Biotechnology Career Fair (BCF) organizers are looking for graduate students to be apart of their committees to help organize the September 13, 2012 event.

Open Positions:

*         Secretary/ Treasurer

*         Sponsorship Coordinator

*         Advertising

*         Event Coordinator I: Pre-fair panels

*         Event Coordinator II: Fair Events

*         Volunteer Coordinator

This is great opportunity for biotech students to network with industry representatives in a more face-to-face fashion rather than competing with the more chaotic career fair crowd.
