The Career Center ventured into uncharted territory with our Internship Careernival last week; an opportunity for students to engage with employers in a more informal environment than a traditional career fair.
The intramural soccer field was transformed into a carnival, complete with hot dogs, cotton candy, games and even a huge, inflatable Twister board. But that wasn’t all the Careernival had to offer! Employers seeing interns for this summer or fall were also in attendance, speaking to students of all majors and class levels.
Feedback from both employers and students after the event was very positive. Several students remarked that the event was fun and that it also “leveled the playing field” a bit by having a more informal environment. Many great connections were made that day!
