Virtual Intern Week (January 25 – February 1, 2021) primarily targets first and second year students in their pursuit of an internship or co-op. It is strategically placed the week before the SWE fair (February 3, 2021) and is packed with virtual events to help students feel confident and comfortable navigating the fair and the spring job search.
ALL engineering students are welcome to participate, as the programs cover a wide variety of topics and are not solely related to internships and co-ops.
Events are virtual and conveniently spread out during the day throughout the week. Based on your class schedule and interest, attend as many events as you can.
To attend these events, please register in Handshake and the zoom link provided.
