Upcoming Fairs: Service, Study Abroad, Careers/Internships,

It's the start of the fall semester, which means fairs, fairs, and more fairs! These events are an excellent way to learn more about volunteering in the Madison community, study abroad programs, and potential career options, even if you are not applying for jobs right now. You can learn a LOT about potential employers, what they look for in new hires, and how you can start building your skill set so that you're competitive when you're ready to apply. In addition, many companies hire in the fall for jobs and internships that start in the following summer, so start your search NOW. You could have your summer 2018 plans in place before the fall 2017 semester ends!
