CI Internship and Career Fair

The value of internship experience while in college, cannot be understated. The National Association of Colleges and Employers reported in 2017 that research shows “students graduating with internship experience…are more likely than students without those experiences to find employment upon graduation.”

To help our students to that end, the College of Communication and Information is hosting an Internship and Career Fair, along with a variety of surrounding supporting events. All events are open to any student in any major in the College of Communication and Information.

Internship and Career Fair: Wednesday, March 27, 1-4 p.m., Ballroom C, Gatton Student Center

On Wednesday, March 27, the Internship and Career Fair will take place from 1-4 p.m. in Ballroom C of the Gatton Student Center. A number of employers will be on site looking for students to fill a variety of roles and positions, to help them gain valuable skills and make professional connections.
