Students Flock to 2011 Internship Expo

2011 Internship Expo

Around 40 companies recruit interns for upcoming semesters at the annual Intership Expo.

Webster University students gathered for a taste of the future and tips for the present at the annual Internship Expo. Preparing students for — and placing — internships is one of the strengths of Webster’s School of Communications.

The annual expo is arranged by Webster’s Center for Portfolio Development & Internships.

About 40 organizations were there Oct. 27 to share information and recruit interns for upcoming semesters. Students had an opportunity to speak to these representatives and learn about potential internships, hand out resumes and show portfolios.

Students who are not quite ready for an internship or who are looking for advice utilized The Center Commons at the Expo, where experts offered tips and suggestions on resume writing, portfolio development, networking and more.
