Internship Fair

Ever wonder how you can create an impressive resume when you're applying for your first job? What can you include on your resume that might impress an employer?

Consider the benefits of an internship. Internships can be a great way to try out a career field, learning on the job and seeing if it's the right fit for you. What you learn and the on-the-job responsibilities are perfect for creating an impressive resume. Internships provide hands-on experience and networking opportunities while letting you see what the "world of work" really looks and feels like!
