Internship Corner – Employers Really Do Hire Students at Fairs!

With the Winter Job & Internship Fair coming up on Thursday (2/15), I thought I’d share a little stat from last year’s winter fair.  83% of the employers who attended and responded to our follow-up survey indicated they made a hire as a result of attending the fair…in fields like counseling, teaching, marketing, finance, sales, and engineering.  Employers really DO want to hire Huskies when they come to fairs.  More than 70 employers will be recruiting interns at the fair. Use the next few days to research, prep materials, practice elevator pitches, and attend a live or virtual Career Fair Success workshop.
