Princeton University’s Summer Internship Fair 2/17/12

Friday, February 17, 2012 - 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Location: Dillon Gym, Princeton University
Organized by: Career Services at Princeton University

Princeton University's 8th Annual Summer Internship Fair will be held on Friday, February 17th from 1-4 pm in the Dillon Gymnasium. (Please note: this is the first year moving to a larger campus venue, so they will be able to accommodate more employers this year than in years past.)

Princeton’s Summer Internship Fair is an annual event held by the Office of Career Services which brings potential internship employers and Princeton students together on campus. This event has successfully helped employers connect directly with students and increase visibility of their organization, while students have benefited from learning about unique summer opportunities.

If you, and your organization, are interested in being represented please contact Jennifer Prudencio, Assistant Director of Internships, at (jprudenc@princeton.edu).
