What does the day of i3 look like?

i3 is a multi-day event of educational panels where students attend to learn about what it is like to work in the event’s chosen industry and how to enter the field. This is an opportunity to share experiences with Trojans and recruit students for your paid internships.

How do I sign up?

If you are actively recruiting for paid internships for the fall, spring, or summer semesters, we encourage you to sign up! One organization representative is required to participate in the panel, as we would like students to learn as much about the industry as possible. To register, sign-up or log into your connectSC account and click on the “Career Events” tab. Click the “register” button next to the appropriate panel. You are not a confirmed participant until you receive further notification from the Career Center.

Third party recruiters, graduate programs, and fee-based programs will not be considered. Panelists and employers must be employed directly with their company. This is a limited-space event, so registration closes on a first-come, first-served basis.

For further questions, please contact the Internship Engagement Team at interns@usc.edu

Do I need to be a speaker to participate in i3?
At least one of your representatives needs to be prepared to speak on the panel. Panelist questions are provided to registered employers beforehand.

How do I register for i3?
To register, sign-up or log into your connectSC account and click on the “Career Events” tab. Click the “register” button next to the appropriate panel.

Can I register for more than one event?
Yes, but registration confirmation is dependent on available space for each individual event. All registrations are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

How much does i3 cost?
Registration covers participation for two (2) representatives to speak on the panel at one (1) i3 event:

$250 for all organizations to participate. Participants must pay online on connectSC.

What is provided when I register for i3?
The standard registration includes space for 2 representatives per organization. Additionally, all organizations receive a resume book of the students who attend the panel.

What are the requirements for i3?
You must be actively recruiting to fill an open, paid internship position, which is defined by the California State hourly minimum wage. Students must be able to apply to your internship at the time of the event.

When will my registration be confirmed?
Your registration will be confirmed approximately within one to two weeks upon submission of your completed registration.

My registration was denied, why?
We have a cap of 10 employers for each event, so maximum capacity may have been reached; however, we will try to place you into another relevant panel if possible.
