Join us at the Career & Internship Fair!
Call for Posters: The 2019 poster making season for internships has now passed. Please check back at a later date or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in making an internship poster for a future event.
Benefits for poster presenters
- Reflect on and articulate impact of internship experience.
- Gain experience in designing a visual composition.
- Create a high-quality product that reflects your professional experience.
- Network with employers at Internship Fair – show employers (with photos!) your professional side.
- Make an impact: your “story” is a great encouragement to other students. Many make the decision to look for an internship after talking with their peers.
Poster making process
- Permission. Discuss this poster project with your supervisor. Students must have permission from their supervisors to develop a poster. Be sure he/she understands that his/her name, company name, company logo, etc. will be included. Please feel free to share this web page with your organization/company.
- Photos. Great shots are essential! Please plan to have 3-4 high-resolution photos for your poster. Ideas include an “on the job” photo, photo with mentor, photo with team members, a head shot, etc. (Please do not crop original photos; send any quality phone photos in large format).
- Format. Posters will be made on a standard Power Point slide template using a common template. Note that STEM students can choose to create their own posters (following guidelines) or have Sabrina Doré (of STEM programs) make them. If you plan to have Sabrina make your poster, please complete the Internship Fair Questionnaire. Be aware that quotes will be pulled from this form, so information should be accurate and text well-written.
- Approval. Before printing, approval from students and mentors must be obtained. Other interested parties, such as Strommen, faculty/advisors, etc. will also have the opportunity to voice concerns/edit.
