Making the Most of the Diversity Internship Fair

Please join us for our

4th Annual Diversity Internship Fair

Thursday, October 29th, 12-2pm

Sponsored by OMSA and Career Advising and Planning Services

This event is open to all students in The College, Graduate Divisions, and Professional Schools

We welcome all students, no matter where you are in your internship/employment seeking process, but make the most of your time at the internship fair by following these simple suggestions:

1. Bring copies of your most recent resume to share with potential employers or internship sites. Contact CAPS for information on getting your resume reviewed.

2. Have a 30 second "elevator speech" prepared to share with the representatives you may meet. What is it that makes you a good fit for the organization you're interested in?

3. Wear business casual attire.

4. Do your homework on the organizations you're interested in talking with. A list of confirmed attendees is below:

Academy for Urban School Leadership, Chicago Careers in Health Professions, Chicago Youth Centers, Collegiate Scholars Program, Digitas, Discover Law, Grosvenor Capital Management, Human Rights Internship Program, Hyde Park Art Center, JP Morgan, The Leadership Alliance,  Library and Information Science Access Midwest Program, Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), Planned Parenthood, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO), Summer Links, Teach for America, Urban Teacher Education Program (UTEP)
