FHSS Internship & Civic Engagement Fair – Thurs, Feb 11th

It’s that time of year again … when you get to make connections with off campus organizations that can provide you with rich opportunities to gain meaningful experience during your undergraduate program. It doesn’t really matter what your major is, but if you are interested in working with people with challenges of one kind or another and helping them learn, overcome, and succeed, then this fair is for you! There will also be business experiences, non-profit organizations, criminal justice, social services, health services, gerontology, women’s issues, developmental settings, educational settings, residential treatment centers, and civic engagement opportunities.

DON’T BE DISCOURAGED IF YOU ARE NOT SEEING ENOUGH ORGANIZATIONS PARTICIPATING! They have to go through an approval process for this virtual fair that they don’t have to do for our in-person fairs in past years, so they are learning the process too! Keep checking back on Handshake until the night before the fair, so you can sign up for new organizations that you may be interested as they add on.

Here are some ‘helps’ for you in your journey of getting registered for the Fair:
