Investigate Industries and Internships (i3)


Speak to students looking for internships and present how you got your start in the industry. i3 offers a great chance to talk about your organization, share your story, and recruit qualified students to fill your internship positions.

What is the format of i3?

i3 provides company representatives with 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 event lets you highlight your organization and 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 four specific industries. There is a limited amount of space available on a first come, first serve basis.

What does the day of i3 look like?

i3 takes place from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, with a panel during the first half, and an internship fair during the second half. During the panel, you will be able to share your professional journey and industry insights with students interested in your line of work. This is a great way to engage students and share how you broke into your industry. Then, you will be able to meet with students searching for internship opportunities with your organization. Please note that a 6-foot table will be provided for recruiting, but will be shared between two employers. You may bring one additional guest who can focus on answering questions about the industry, your organization, and your professional journey for the panel.

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.
