In search for the next generation of petroleum engineers, our SPE Gulf Coast Section holds annual
high school recruiting fairs in Houston and throughout the Gulf Coast Section area. Each
recruiting fair is two hours long and held at different high schools. This year the recruiting fairs have been scheduled for the week of November 5–9 at the following high schools: Oak Ridge, Fort Bend
Baptist Academy, Cinco Ranch, Carver, and Washington.

At these fairs, we provide information to high school students about petroleum engineering, colleges, and SPE scholarships and internships. We are seeking volunteers to give ten-minute talks about recent graduate perspectives (five years or less of industry experience), industry leader perspectives, the SPE Scholarship Program, and internship availabilities.

Your commitment is only for one recruiting fair at your most convenient location. We also need sponsors to provide give-aways for the students. If you have any questions, want further details, or are interested in volunteering for these events, please contact Karla Guajardo at (713) 366-5286 or
