Dear All,

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.

AAPG RIGS format

–        The event will is scheduled for three consecutive Fridays, September 16th, 23rd, and 30th, 4:00-5:00 PM.
–        16th September – Career Info session – a discussion with industry professionals about careers in Geoscience (Oil and Gas), + Resume Review session – (details to follow)
–        23rd September – 3 student talks followed by networking session over some snacks and beverages
–        30th September – 16 student posters with a parallel networking session

All undergrads, professional masters, and grad students are invited to participate. You are requested to submit an abstract by 5th August at aapg@rice.edu.  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 pk15@rice.edu, 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.

If you have any questions or suggestions then kindly let us know.
