Tomorrow – Creative Job and Internship Fair

Creative Job and Internship Fair
Tuesday, March 7th 2017, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm CST

Walk-ins are welcome, must be DePaul students or alumni.

Join the DePaul Career Center for a mini-career fair and a unique opportunity to network and connect with creative industry professionals and recruiters. The Creative Job & Internship Fair aims to bring together a cross-section of students interested in creative roles with employers looking to hire DePaul’s diverse creative talent. Learn about current and future full-time, part-time and internship positions. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to attend.

We are excited to announce that representatives from Stage 18 and the Chicago Film Office will also be in attendance. While they will not be looking to hire, feel free to network with them regarding their organizations and their path in the industry. 

Students from the following majors and programs are strongly encouraged to attend:

  • Animation (Cinema & Game Art concentrations)

Prepare for the fair:

 

1. Have your Resume Reviewed

 

Visit the Career Center’s Peer Career Advisors for a resume review. Peer Career Advisors are highly trained undergraduates who advise students and alumni concerning basic career related issues on a walk-in basis. Bring multiple copies of your updated resume to the fair.

 

2. Practice Interviewing

 

Make sure to practice your interviewing skills on DePaul InterviewStream whenever you want to prepare for all of your job, internship and co-op interviews.

3. Research Companies and Positions!
Make sure to research companies and positions you are interested in prior to the fair. Rather than spending time asking employers questions that have easy to find answers, focus on discussing how your skills and experience match what they are looking for. This information is on Handshake and Career Fair +.

4. Download the new Career Fair Plus App

 

Through this app you have access to a complete employer listing, event details, and real-time updates in the palm of your hands. The app can be accessed for both IOS and Android.
