The University of Notre Dame will be holding its annual Winter Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm in the Joyce Center Fieldhouse. According the The Career Center, last year, more than 140 employers came to network with over 1,500 students from all majors. Students who are seeking a summer internship, full-time job after graduation, or simply more networking experience should consider attending the career fair.
There are a number of events happening on campus this upcoming week in order to help students prepare. Resume reviews for Arts & Letters, Science, Engineering and Mendoza College of Business students are being held throughout the week. Film, Television, and Theater students can learn more about getting an internship at a workshop on January 27 in DeBartolo Hall. First Year students can set up appointments at The Career Center to start building a resume and career goals. Students can also attend a workshop entitled, "Preparing for The Winter Career and Internship Fair" on January 28 in Flanner Hall. In order to attend all these events, students must sign up for a time slot on "Go IRISH," a website run by the Career Center to help students find internships. Many other workshops and events are listed on the Go IRISH website for students to peruse.
Notre Dame also makes a point to hold a Diversity and Inclusion Reception before each career fair. The reception allows organizations and companies concerned with encouraging diversity to meet with like-minded students a few hours before the official career fair begins. Last year, over 150 students interacted with more than 200 recruiters and participation is expected to grow. All students are invited to attend. The event will be held in the Monogram Room of the Joyce Center Fieldhouse and students must RSVP on the Go IRISH website.
Tips that students often hear regarding career fairs include wearing business-appropriate attire and bringing a few copies of a resume printed on quality paper to give to potential employers.
