Modeled after speed dating, interns were seated on one side of the table, while representatives from companies were seated on the other side. Students had 5-8 minutes with each company representative to get to know one another,  discuss their qualifications, and career goals with the hope of getting an internship.

Internship: Mill Steel

"It was all brand new," said Megan Donovan, '16, of her internship in the manufacturing environment of Mill Steel, a plant that distributes and processes flat-rolled steel products.
