Internship Fair

Are you looking to gain an internship opportunity? Search no more! The Career Center’s Internship Fair is a great opportunity for students of all majors and class levels from all three UW Campuses to connect with  corporate, small business, non-profit and government employers who are all looking for Huskies, like YOU, to fill their internship needs. Don’t miss out on this perfect opportunity!

When: February 12, 2014
Where: HUB Ballrooms
Time: 2:00-6:00pm


WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Studies show that participating in an internship while at school increases the chance you’ll land a productive and rewarding full-time job when you graduate by providing a connection between your daily classroom experience and the world of work.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE FAIR

  • Prepare your resume. The Career Center holds regular resume workshops each week. Once you have your resume drafted, stop by for a Same-Day Session for a critique.
  • Submit your resume to the 2014 Internship Fair Resume Book! Select employers have purchased access to this book, in the hopes of identifying talented UW interns. Whether or not you're attending the fair, don't miss this opportunity to stand out! Click here for more details.
  • Research the employers. Spend a few minutes researching the employers who are attending. The list below is updated regularly and will be posted as a downloadable 'Internship Fair Guide' later in January. Research those employers you’re interested in meeting with by visiting their web sites and doing a quick review of them online and in trade magazines.
  • Practice your approach. What do you want the employer to know about you? Which of your skills and past experiences do you want to highlight? Have a short 15-second “sales pitch” ready and make sure to build in some good questions of your own to ask the employer.

Make sure to attend our Career Fair Success workshop for help in all these areas, or our specially-offered Internship Fair Success workshop the week before the fair!

 WHAT SHOULD I WEAR

Your style of dress may vary according to the type of field you’re considering and the employers you plan to meet with. However, you’ll find that most employers will be wearing business-casual attire, which is a safe bet for you as well. For female students, nice slacks or a skirt with a simple blouse and/or sweater will be fine. Male students should wear pressed slacks and a pressed collared shirt and/or sweater.

 FREE PROFILE PICTURE BOOTH

The Career Center is excited to offer a LinkedIn Photo Booth during the Internship Fair from 2:00 – 4:00pm in HUB 214. Students, staff, and employers can get a FREE professional headshot for use on your social media profiles. We will also have tips on how to maximize this tool for new and experienced users alike. And yes, you need a LinkedIn account - over 90% of employers are using LinkedIn to hire and review candidates.
