MARYVILLE, Mo. – Searching for internships, applying for jobs, and taking the next step into the big, bad “real world” can all be scary and intimidating especially when you don’t know where to start. Northwest Missouri State University’s Betsy Hildebrand took on the challenge when Northwest held Career Day on March 11, 2014.
Career Day was hosted in Bearcat Arena and held many opportunities for students of all majors. Hildebrand is a junior at Northwest and was interested in pursuing an internship, a requirement for the Public Relations major.
“Walking into the event I was excited to see what companies were there and what opportunities they all had. There was a large variety to choose from and everyone was so nice if you had questions about their booth or company,” said Hildebrand.
Career Day had over 100 attending organizations that targeted students looking for internships, employment, or even furthering their education into graduate school. It was requested that students attending the event dressed professionally and had copies of their resumes available to hand out to employers.
“I think I got a lot out of Career Day. I was able to hand out my information to a few people and do a little networking. I was super glad that I went and highly recommend everyone to attend at the next one,” Hildebrand said.
