Freshmen/Sophomore Internship Fair
Wednesday, February 26, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Locatelli Center
According to the SCU Outcomes 2012 Survey, 75% of our students had at least one internship. According to a recent survey of our students by Intern Bridge, 88% reported that their internship built confidence in their skills and competencies. Additionally, we find that internships early on in students’ college experience help them see the breadth of opportunities available and free them up to discern where their real interests lie and then choose majors accordingly. To support our students’ professional development and discernment process, we are once again hosting our annual Freshman/Sophomore Internship Fair. Encourage your students to attend and prepare in advance.
LinkedIn Lab Drop-in Hours
Fridays, 2-4 p.m. Campus Ministry
Did you know that 93% of employers use LinkedIn to source and recruit talent? (2012 Jobvite Social Recruitment Survey) It is no longer uncommon for us to hear stories of recruiters finding our students’ LinkedIn profiles and inviting them to interview for internships and jobs. In fact, one student reported that a few days after working on his profile in our LinkedIn lab, an AT&T recruiter contacted him. Encourage your students to attend our open, drop-in labs to work on their profiles, get a professional picture taken, and learn how to use LinkedIn for internship and job searching and networking.
