A good education is the key to success. Attending college helps prepare students for their futures as professionals, but what about after the program ends?
The students who attended the Human Services Internship Fair on Nov. 14 experienced firsthand what applying for internships is like in the real world. Students were asked to prepare resumes, practice their networking skills, and dress for success before meeting with organizations and agencies from all over the area.
The Internship Fair does more than just allow students to practice their elevator speeches. It enables them to become familiar with the organizations that they may want to work for in the future.
“The internship fair not only brings folks from the community to our school and connects them to our students,” said Human Services Instructor Kathleen Hathaway, “it helps connect our students to their community, and that is invaluable.”
