What is the format of i3?
i3 allows company representatives the opportunity to recruit interns for their organization as well as provide advice, share their personal story, and make recommendations to students interested in the field. Students are encouraged to ask you questions about your professional journey into your industry, to gain personal insight on how to be successful in the same field.  This lets you highlight your organization and professional journey of breaking into the industry, and provide helpful advice to students who are interested in your company and the work you do. Held in both Fall and Spring semesters (September and February), i3 focuses on 4 specific industries. There is a limited amount of space available on a first come, first serve basis.

Who can participate?
Participants must be actively recruiting to fill at least one paid internship position, for fall, spring, or summer semesters. Third party recruiters, graduate programs and fee-based programs will not be considered. Participants must be employed directly with their company.
