As the President of the Rice AAPG Student Chapter it is my pleasure to announce a new event – AAPG RIGS (Rice Industry Geoscience Series), which will take place during the month of September this year. This event is to inform and assist students in their employment search endeavors within the Oil & Gas industry. The format of the event is organized in such a way that students can get more exposure to the Industry Professionals in terms of networking as well as recruitment.

All undergrads, professional masters, and grad students are invited to participate. You are requested to submit an abstract by 5th August at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state whether you would like to give a presentation or have a poster. The candidates will be shortlisted by a review committee consisting of Rice professors and Industry professionals. If you are travelling, or on field trip and cannot submit the abstract before the deadline then kindly let me know at email@example.com, and we could arrange something.
I would like to request you all to attend all the events as you never know which contact you make could lead into an internship or a job.
