Clarkson University to Host Regional Small Employer Career/Internship Fair & Networking Event
Regional Colleges Collaborate with Small Businesses to Stem Brain Drain
The Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley (Clarkson University, St. Lawrence University, SUNY Canton, and SUNY Potsdam) and Penski Staffing will host the second annual Regional Small Employer Career/Internship Fair & Networking Event on Wednesday, March 7, at Clarkson University.
This program is specifically designed to collaborate with and to meet the needs of organizations located in the North Country and Adirondack region.
Businesses and non-profit organizations will have an opportunity to recruit students for short-term projects, as well as summer, semester, internship, volunteer, and full-time positions. Attendees will have a chance to meet with students from four area colleges and universities.
For organizations unfamiliar with internships, associated regulations, and university services, there will be two informational workshops held in the Clarkson University Student Center prior to the recruiting event.
The workshops, presented by small business and university representatives, will discuss how to utilize students to enhance business operations, as well as the legalities surrounding internships.
For more information on this regional initiative, please contact Jeffrey Taylor, director of the Clarkson University Career Center, at 315-268-6477. The entire program will take place on the 2nd floor of the Clarkson University Student Center.
