The Internship Fair hosted by Webster University’s Office of Corporate Partnerships on April 8 connected students with employers who are seeking to hire interns. More than 100 students took advantage of the professional development opportunity, which gave them access to a dozen recruiters from various industries, including: finance, healthcare, information technology, marketing, public relations and more.
“In today’s highly competitive business environment, it’s imperative that students are exposed to career development opportunities,” said Benjamin Akande, chief of corporate partnerships and dean of the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology. “Our internship fair was a success because it introduced Webster University talent to recruiters from local and global companies.”
In addition to discussing career opportunities with prospective employers, the Internship Fair included a deans’ table where students could chat with Webster University deans and register to win raffle prizes. This Internship Fair marks the second career development event hosted this year by the Office of Corporate Partnerships.
