Every Friday, we’ll be highlighting some helpful information specifically for first-year students. Today we’re focusing on next week’s Winter Career Expo. For more advice, take a look at the Freshman Friday post archive.
Lizzy and Chatoris, two of our peer advisors, have great Expo stories. They started going early in their Michigan career and feel that it gave them a chance to get comfortable talking with employers and build their professional community. At next week’s Winter Career Expo, there will be 21 organizations targeting 1st year/sophomore students. Build your own Expo story by starting with Freshman-friendly organizations like:
Red Frog Events
Red Frog Events is seeking tremendously talented candidates for our summer Event Coordinator internship program to travel to our events and help implement our three nationwide series (WarriorDash.com, GreatUrbanRace.com, and BeachPalooza.com).
The Survey Research Center
The Survey Research Center Internship Program is a 10 week, 20 – 40 hour per week paid position for undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in social science research. Interns will be typically assigned to an ongoing research study, attend appropriate seminars/courses on principles of survey research, and participate in a research symposium.
Dominos considers our Interns to be our future team members, and have built a program to reflect this. Our Interns are given project based work with clear objectives to meet. Each Intern’s summer ends by giving a presentation to our Executive Team (including the CEO!) and other stakeholders in the organization on what they learned. Our paid internships run from mid-May to mid-August. Projects are available in nearly every department.
