Co-op/Internship Fair Matches Students with Employers

To find major-related career experience while in school, check out the Co-op/Internship Fair on Thursday, Sept. 19, in the Pegasus Ballroom. All students are invited to attend the event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Office of Experiential Learning hosts the semiannual event for students to meet with employers seeking intern and co-op students. Forty employers will be participating, such as: Aon, Blue Toad Inc., DiSTi, Edward Jones, Heart of Florida United Way, HostDime.com Inc., Kohl’s, Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas, Siemens, Starwood Vacation Ownership, The Walt Disney Company and Northwestern Mutual.

“This event can be a one-stop-shop for students and employers to meet and learn about one another and match skills and interests to opportunities,” said faculty coordinator Sandra Macaulay Leon-Barth. “It is not uncommon for students to walk away with solid internship prospects as employers are eager to fill their positions with our talented Knights.”

Both paid and unpaid opportunities are available.

Professional attire is required and students should bring resumes and their UCF ID. RSVP at www.facebook.com/UCFOEL.
