SAN ANTONIO—The Center for Career Development and Testing is hosting an Internship Fair on March 8, 2018. Representatives from all over the San Antonio area will be looking to recruit Our Lady of the Lake students. The Internship Fair will be located in Providence Hall West Social Room and Blue Room from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. According to the memo released by the CCDT, some of the representatives include the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, The DoSeum, Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio, CPS Energy, Discovery World Learning Center, FBI, HACU, Judson, and RBFCU.
The Internship Fair will give students the unique opportunity to talk to multiple employers at one convenient location. For many students, this will be their chance to network, ask questions and develop a connection with potential employers.
“I think it’s important to have fairs because it can help a student who is having trouble, find opportunities through our campus,” Senior Ida Hernandez said.
Bringing internship representatives to campus also gives representatives the ability to present tips and recommendations directly to students. This means that students can hear exactly what type of skills and strategies are necessary to be competitive candidates for the various internships available. Hernandez also pointed out that the upcoming fair will give students who may not have transportation access to diverse internship opportunities. Students can RSVP through Handshake.
Although the fair is a couple weeks away, students can start looking at internships today through Handshake. Handshake is a system that helps students find internships or full-time jobs and is a valuable tool available to OLLU students who may not know where to begin.
