We’ve already talked about internships, why they are important, and how to find the right one for you. Now there’s a unique opportunity that is taking the internship search to a whole new level. A ‘webinar’ is exactly what it sounds like, a seminar that is attended via the internet.
The Internships from Accounting to Zoology webinar features internationally known author and speaker Donald Asher. Asher is highly knowledgeable in the field of career development and has written numerous books, contributed to newspapers and magazines, and is a consultant for top MBA programs and undergraduate institutions nationwide.
This webinar is an exciting chance for students to get tips from a professional on how to land beneficial internships before and after you graduate. The program will touch on the number of internships you will need, when to start your internship search, and what to do to get the most out of your internship.
Another aspect that the webinar will touch on is virtual internships. Virtual internships are becoming more popular in the college world today. ‘Virtual’ means that you don’t ever have to set foot in an office building. This new type of internship opens many more opportunities to students.
The Internships from Accounting to Zoology webinar will take place on January 28, 2010 from 12:00-1:00pm in MAC Room 137. There is no RSVP needed, just show up ready to learn. This webinar is a unique opportunity for students to get expert advice from a professional in the Career Services industry.
