Risk Management and Insurance Career Fair

Appalachian’s Gamma Iota Sigma chapter sponsors an insurance specific career fair in each October and February. The RMI Career Fair educates students about careers in the industry and facilitates recruiting for both professional positions and summer internships. There are currently 170 Risk Management & Insurance majors at Appalachian and a large percentage of our majors will have successfully completed a summer internship in the insurance industry prior to graduation.

Campus wide career fairs are also hosted by our University Career Development Center each spring and fall. These fairs serve majors from all the colleges on campus. Information about those fairs can be found on their website.
