GSSW to hold marketplace for field placement

Cougar news staff

The University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work will hold its 10th annual Field Agency Marketplace Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University Center's Houston Room.

The GSSW established the marketplace in 1989 to provide a chance for students to learn about and interact with the various agencies available to them as field placement sites.

Field placement sites can be anywhere from hospitals to offices of government officials. They are used to help students apply what they learned in the classroom in an actual working environment.

The marketplace is designed to help students find the right field placements to suit their needs. The marketplace will offer something for any GSSW student and anyone interested in a career in social work. Admissions personnel will also be on hand to talk with potential applicants to the school.

For more information call (713) 743-8094.
