Career fairs. Job fairs. Internship fairs. I am a big fan of these. The reason I got my first internship (which led me to this amazing first job) was because of a career fair on campus. We found one of our amazing interns Tracey at an internship fair. You hardly ever will get to meet with a bunch of different companies in one place (the internet doesn’t count). AND, there’s always I-don’t-need-it-but-really-really-want-it s.w.a.g. I’m biased, obviously, but there are some really simple ways to make a huge difference in the way you approach these fairs.

Because I’m a finance major who’s looking to make a difference, I wanted to intern at organizations that had a mission or objective that I felt connected to. So when the recession hit, I decided to look for internships away from the big banks of Wall Street. Soon, I found myself at the Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Stability (OFS) in Washington, D.C., and I couldn’t have been happier. Working at the heart of our government’s solution to the recession was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

How did you get started in the industry? How can someone who is [...]
