Our Internship Fairs are held every fall semester – usually mid-September. This is a great opportunity for you to meet recruiters who are seeking FIU students to fill their internship positions.
The next Internship Fair will take place in the Fall 2015 semester:

For students planning to attend the Internship Fair
Professional attire and resume recommended.
Remember to bring the following:
• Panther ID Card (Your Panther ID number gets you admitted to the Fair)
• Multiple copies of your resumé
• A briefcase or portfolio to hold your resumés and any material employers may provide you (please leave backpacks and bookbags at home)
• Pen and paper to take notes (essential for following up with employers!)
• Attend professional development workshops
Practice and preparation is essential for success at the Internship Fair. Essentially, the Internship Fair should be treated as a job interview. That is why we offer our professional development workshops throughout the year.
• Perfect your resume
Your resumé needs to stand out from the crowd. Be sure it stands out because of its polished and professional appearance, and not typos, inconsistencies, and errors.
The Career Services Office offers resumé critiques as part of their Walk-In Program. All you need to bring is a sample of your current resumé, and one of our staff members will ensure your resumé is flawless.
We also offer the professional development workshop, “Resumé Writing,” to give you a headstart in the do’s and don’ts of resumé creation. You can also find resume samples and guides in our Online Resources.
• Dress for Success
Although we live in an increasingly casual world, the saying “Dress for the job you want!” has never been more true. We require professional attire for admittance to the Internship Fair. Our professional development workshops address the topic of professional attire.
• Practice Interview Program (PIP)
Practice does truly make perfect. Consider participating in the Practice Interview Program. This program allows you to interview with an actual recruiter who will provide invaluable feedback and critique your performance. In addition, you will learn what employers and recruiters are looking for in job candidates.
