If you have yet to be informed about the Regis Career & Internship Fair via a slew of emails and advertisements from the University, then you better mark your calendars because it is only one week away! The event will take place on February 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the field house and will host over sixty companies across a myriad of industries. While the internship fair may seem a bit daunting, it is a surefire way to exponentially build your network. The Career Center is also hosting a free workshop on January 31st from 5 to 6:30 p.m. to offer advice on how to make the most of your time at the fair. Also, make sure to dress professionally as you can get a free Linkedin headshot at the fair as well.
Moreover, obviously not everyone is going to be able to gain employment from this event, but just attending it will be extremely valuable to advancing your professional career. The fair is a great opportunity to build a network with potential employers through meaningful connections. Bring plenty copies of your resume to hand out, and don’t be afraid to strike up conversations, as you may be talking to someone who could potentially be your new boss. This fair is a great opportunity to get your name out to employers and get more experience interacting with professionals in your field.
If you are unable to make this event, then fret not, as more employment events are scheduled throughout the semester. For everyone else who is able to attend, I wish you good luck! Chat some employers ear’s off and don’t be afraid to build your network!
