My name is Jana Walters and I am the Fieldwork Coordinator for the Exercise Science undergraduate students in the Department of Kinesiology at James Madison University.
This blog is intended to help deliver fieldwork and/or employment opportunities to the Exercise Science majors at JMU. Previously, I have posted opportunities on the KIN 471/481 course Blackboard site. While useful, those postings were only received by a small group of students. I have wished many times to have a public forum where I could communicate an opportunity that I receive by email. With this blog, I can post items as I receive them, and students (current and graduates) can review the postings in one place at their leisure. An added bonus is the electronic format – no worries about another student taking  the hard copy of your dream opportunity off the bulletin board!

Finally, I may post announcements for fitness industry events, graduate school open houses, or graduate assistantship opportunities. I will use this blog to communicate any opportunity I receive that will help our students!
