4th Annual Walker EDGE Internship Fair

On February 7, 2018, in Career Insight, Uncategorized, by Walker News

The annual Walker EDGE Internship Fair took place on February 1st, in the East Academic Building’s Edward Jones Commons. Over fifty students took advantage of the opportunity to speak with recruiters to find potential employment matches and to gain experience with career/internship fairs. The companies in attendance represent a variety of industries giving students the ability to explore an internship in their career field and one that fits their desired company structure and culture.

Strength stickers were provided for students and recruiters to wear, as a creative and fun way to identify professional skills, engage in conversation and to facilitate networking. Sticker examples included: “Takes Initiative,” “Creative Problem Solver,” “Calm under Pressure,’ and “Ultra Hacker.”

The Career Planning & Development Center and Walker EDGE Office worked together to co-sponsor a successful day of outside-of-the- classroom learning that is essential for students’ professional development.
