New Internship Fair Interview Slots Available 
Job Hunt Panel April 14

 

The Internship Fair is still going on. Many of you have been able to take advantage. I hope your interviews have gone well.

Many of you still have not had an opportunity to interview, but there are still some opportunities. New and previously confirmed organizations have made additional interview slots available. The organizations still taking new signups are below along with the links to the signup sheets (Google assures me that these are shared to all of you through the link provided, but some students have had trouble accessing. If you experience trouble, please email me. Also please don't share the link outside the J-school). Please read the information about the interviews closely. Some require materials to be sent in advance.
