Intern Insight 2014

CONWAY, Ark. (January 16, 2014) – The Office of Career Services will host “Intern Insight” on Thursday, Jan. 30, at 11:10 a.m. in Worsham Hall in the Student Life and Technology Center.

The new program allows students to learn about internships from fellow classmates who have previously completed internships, according to Leigh Lassiter-Counts, director of career counseling and internships.  

Last year, 126 Hendrix students completed internships at sites ranging from The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation in New Jersey and Akzo Nobel in Amsterdam to local sites including UAMS, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, The Clinton Foundation, AETN and the Conway Regional Health Foundation.

Career Services is providing student presenters with science fair-type boards to display photos from their projects, and tidbits about what they learned or why they thought doing an internship was important will make it on the boards. So far, more than 50 student interns have agreed to share their experiences, she said.

Also this spring, Career Services will host its annual Professional Power Hour and Etiquette Dinner on Wednesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in Worsham. The program features Hendrix alumni Pattie Weed and Mark Wilson. Attendance is limited to the first 120 students.

The 2014 Career and Internship Fair will be Thursday, March 6, at 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in Worsham.
