Grad Students Prepping for the Fair: Start Here

Spring semester is almost over!?

For some of us it’s that time of the year to look for a summer internship and for others it’s our last semester and we’re job searching. If you’re unsure about how to go about your job/internship search, the Internship & Career Fair is a great place to start. There will be about 40+ employers at the Career/Internship Fair. This is your time to shine! Learn about the positions they have available and let them know what you bring to the table.
