“We’re seeing a national trend emphasizing the importance of internships for college students,” said Brain Burton, associate director for employer relations at the U. “Internships are unmatched opportunities to not only help students identify career paths, but they also provide invaluable employer networks and make students more competitive in the current job market.”
During her presentation, Berger will share her experience of how she managed 15 internships during her four years of college and provide valuable information about the internship application process, resumes, cover letters, interviews, social media, managing a job and an internship, handling paid versus unpaid internships and turning an internship into a job.
