Internship Insider is a peer-to-peer networking event that connects current Grady students with newly admitted and Pre-Journalism students to discuss internship opportunities and student organization involvement. In a career fair set up, Insiders represent their current or past internship sites and will be prepared to share stories about their experience, successes and challenges, and how to get connected with internship opportunities. Last year, students represented companies such as Turner Broadcasting, 22squared, ABC News, USA Today, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and so many more! This year, we are looking for 50 Insiders to represent their internship sites and student organizations. Will you be one of them? Apply here.

3 Tips for Students to Ace Job Fairs

From U.S. News Education:


"1. Have a game plan: Don't even think about going into a career fair without knowing who's going to be there and who you want to speak with. I talked to so many students who I think just stumbled on our booth. Top clue: They would ask basic questions that are answered on the home page of our website.


Even if you do happen to come across a company that you didn't intend to approach but looks promising, take a few minutes to sneak out and look them up on your phone. You want to make every recruiter feel like your top choice.


2. Have a clue: You must do your research. These days companies have put themselves out there so much on the Web and through social media that there's no excuse for not knowing basic information such as core services and key players. Also, if you can find out who is doing the on-campus interviews for one of your top picks, don't be afraid to contact them in advance to introduce yourself.


3. Understand how you're being evaluated: To make the recruiting process more objective, most employers have recruiters fill out a simple ratings sheet for each interviewee..."
