Spring 2011 Career & Internship Fair: What students should know

Lockheed Martin representatives talk with SMU students at a past Career FairIt’s that time of the semester again- despite the early term’s inclement weather (and the cancellation of C & I Prep Day), the Career & Internship Fair returns to SMU Feb. 16, 2011. Here’s what your students should know before trying their luck with some of the top employers in the nation:

The Fair will, as always, be in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom. This semester’s installment takes place from noon to 4 p.m. The Fair is open to all majors within SMU, and no RSVP is required.

As the cancelled Prep Day’s events would have already stated, students should bring their IDs and multiple copies of their résumés, and professional attire is strongly recommended.

More than 80 employers will have representatives at the Career & Internship Fair. Included in the ever-updating companies list are household names such as:

  • AT&T
  • Citi
  • Frito Lay
  • Lockheed Martin (pictured right)
  • Neiman Marcus
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Southwest Airlines

Lunch will be served from 11 to noon. For more information, visit the Hegi Family Career Development Center’s website or Facebook page.

The list of attending employers is subject to be updated in the days leading up to the Fair. To contact the Hegi Center, call 214-768-2266.
