The Stats

I am looking forward to seeing everyone again! A brief throwback to the event from last year.

Last year, 70 employers and over 300 students attended this event. We currently have 90 students working on summer internships for credit, our biggest summer yet. Visit www.wilkes.edu/coop to see our photos from the 2017 event. Read on and register via the blue button,  you can make any logistic changes to your information afterward by returning to this link.

The room setup:

We have a 6 foot table, and two chairs for each employer. We can accept more, but please fill out the form in the link completely to let us know if you have added staff or an extra large display or will need electricity to run your displays. Plan to stay if you can, we have interview rooms available for use that day during or after the event. Email Sharon Castano at sharon.castano@wilkes.edu or Carol Bosack at carol.bosack@wilkes.edu should you want to confirm interview room space.

The fare:

We will be serving coffee, juice, light breakfast items during set up and small sandwich lunch around 12:30pm. There is also a Starbucks at the site, and of course Dunkin' Donuts and various downtown eateries within walking distance.

The result:

Employers are ready to go! Students return Aug. 27th and are already gearing up for the fall semester; I hope you are as well to offer them your mentoring, internship and career opportunities.
