2018 Fraud Investigations & Examination Annual Career Day
Each year during the fall season, the GACFE in conjunction with the help of our sponsors, hosts an annual career day designed to
educate aspiring anti-fraud professionals about the vast career opportunities available between the private and government sectors.
Professionals from all walks of life come to speak at our events as either presenters or panelists. They range from federal and state
agencies, as well as Fortune 500 companies. This year, our event, will be held on - Friday September 28, 2018 at the Mercer
University Atlanta campus located on 2930 Flowers Road South Atlanta. Advanced registration for this event will open on 8/15/18.
We also thank the following institutional sponsors for their aid in making this annual event available, and invite you to click on

"What Makes This Year's Event So Different...."
...from the last several years of events you ask? Well, in addition to our usual private and government sector panelists who will be there,
where you get to ask your career questions of the pros, we have new career breakout workshops this year where you will be adle to
decide whether a career in federal, state, or county law enforcement may be for you. The BIG BONUS this year is that we will
- 10 career coaches on site from Career Quest conducting one on one resume reviews that day.
We can only service the first 50/60 registered attendees in having their resumes reviewed that day.
Emails will be sent to everyone that qualifies.
- Also, there will be a bonus workshop on the STAR Approach to better job intervieing skills
So regardless of whether your intention is to enter the private or government sector, these career coaches will guide you in
the right direction.
At the end of the day, get ready to strap yourselves in (and we mean that literally if you volunteer), because you will be
exposed to an actual FBI polygraph demonstration that will give you a behind the scenes look of what it's like to undergo such an
exam.That is, if you're ever thinking about joining any local, county, state, or federal government agency. But if you're not, then
why not stick around and watch the show. And yes, the FBI will be seeking volunteers. So if you think you're up to the task...
GO FOR IT!
