Steps To Prepare For The Fair


Get psyched!

The Internship Expo will offer you a comfortable space to meet organizations seeking interns.
Show your AppState spirit! Welcome the organizations and thank them for coming to campus!
Let them know the skills you want to offer and what you want to learn from an internship.

Prep to impress!

Check out the organizations' websites, to learn more.
View their information with an eye for how their mission interests you.
Think about how you can contribute to their work and the skills you would learn from them.

Look nice!

Choose professional or business casual clothing to wear to the fair. Be practical for Boone weather.
The Career Development Center will have a space for you to store your book bags and coats.

Send a note or an email thanking them for their time and re-stating your interest in their internship.
