WWU to Host Community Internship and Volunteer Fair Oct. 27

Internships are a great way for students to develop their professional skills and contribute to the community.

Students who are looking to gain work experience, build their resumes, and develop their professional network should attend the Community Internship Fair from noon to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 in the Viking Union Multi-Purpose Room.  Students will be able to meet with over 50 social services organizations, government agencies, and nonprofits to discuss full- and part-time internships.  

Organized and sponsored by the Career Services Center, this is the largest campus event dedicated to providing information about internship and volunteer opportunities in social justice, community service, environment, arts, and government.  Participating employers are seeking students from a broad array of majors including liberal arts, business, science, technology, and more for full- and part-time internships. These internships offer a great opportunity for students to gain professional skills while also making a meaningful contribution to the community.

Participating organizations include SPIE, North Cascades Institute, Arc of Whatcom County, Department of Natural Resources, Wilderness Awareness School, and many more.

To help students make the best impression, students can have their resumes reviewed by calling 650-3240 to make an appointment or they can attend our Drop-In Resume Clinic from 3-5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct.19 in Old Main 280.
