The department had displays of their G.I.S. products, which range from the news program G.I.S. Bulletin to the Government Information Page which appears in newspapers from Monday to Thursday and gives the public information about various aspects of government. The Government Information Service is responsible for the dissemination of information to civil servants internally and to the general public externally.

G.I.S. also displayed the print materials of the department and other promotional materials on particular topics, like the H1N1 flu prevention campaign. Additional G.I.S. media products shown were, from Television Specials, Documentaries to Public Service Announcements; coverage of the Island Council meetings; special events; the Civil Server internal newsletter, and the Government Employment Opportunities pamphlet.

Interim Head of G.I.S. Rodney Richardson said that it was a good opportunity for the students to see what GIS is about, and to promote working in the field of communications. Additionally its also interesting for students to hear from G.I.S. staff members on their experiences of working in Government as a Civil Servant.

Several GIS staff members spoke to the group of students and explained about G.I.S. in general and/or about their function in particular.

The students were invited to visit the department and get hands-on tour and maybe a student internship in the future.

There were about 20 other organizations that were present at the PSVE Career Fair.
