Internships – The focus of the Career Center's Internship Office is to connect students with internship opportunities in all fields. From their first year through graduation, students can take advantage of daily one-on-one sessions and events in the Fall and Spring semesters. We also provide lists of courses for internships (required if an internship is unpaid), e-mails highlighting internship opportunities, and every semester we host Internship Week.
Career Fair – During the first or second month of each semester the Career Center hosts nearly 200 employers from a wide variety of fields including the Fortune 500, government and non-profits as well as small and mid-size organizations representing diverse industries. The opportunities are for students in all majors and disciplines, and range from internships to full-time jobs.
Internship Week – Shortly after the Career Fair each semester, we host a series of panels highlighting a variety of industries, including: Gaming & Technology, Advertising & Public Relations, Non-Profit & the Arts and Real Estate. These panel events create an environment where students can network with employers and share their knowledge and expertise.
