The Office of Corporate Partnerships Internship Fair

Over 100 students discussed internships with recruiters at the fair, hosted by Webster’s Office of Corporate Partnerships.

More than 100 students took advantage of the April 8 internship fair hosted by Webster University’s Office of Corporate Partnerships, which connected Webster students with employers seeking to hire interns in a variety of industries.

The students took the opportunity to speak with a dozen recruiters from areas such as finance, healthcare, information technology, marketing, public relations and more. Companies in attendance included: Blayzer, Centric Group, Centene, Mercy, Scottrade, GL Group, FleishmanHillard, Maritz, CDM Software and Channel Nine Network.

“In today’s highly competitive business environment, it’s imperative that students are exposed to career development opportunities,” said Benjamin Akande, chief of corporate partnerships and dean of the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology.  “Our internship fair was a success because it introduced Webster University talent to recruiters from local and global companies.”

In addition to discussing career opportunities with prospective employers, the fair included a deans’ table where students could chat with Webster University deans and register to win raffle prizes.
