Intern Week (January 27-31, 2020) 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 5, 2020) and is packed with events to help students feel confident and comfortable navigating the fair and the spring job search.

- Events are conveniently spread out during the day and evening throughout the week. Based on your class schedule and interest, attend as many events as you can
- RSVP not required, but strongly encouraged, as food (when offered) will be provided to those who RSVP. RSVP available through Handshake
