Recruit a Shark Day to give students internship opportunities within their field

Career Development and the Office of Student Leadership and Civic Engagement have collaborated to give career fairs a boost. Recruit a Shark Day will take place on Sept. 12 from 3:30 – 6 p.m. in the Rick Case arena. The event will combine both the career and volunteer fair. Students can find, research positions, internships and jobs and volunteer opportunities.

This event, much like past career fairs and expos, will be taking place in both fall and winter semesters. The goal of the event is for every NSU student to be able to find an internship or volunteer opportunity. Over 100 companies and organizations are expected to be present.

Emilio Lorenzo, associate director of employer relations, said that strong companies and brands will be present at the event. “We didn’t just let anyone come. We were very specific on who we want in.”

Lorenzo explained that this event will be the Sharkapalooza of job fairs. The entire Rick Case Arena will be filled with businesses and organizations looking for NSU students. The floor of the arena will include snacks and provide computers for students who want to do some last minute research on a company.

Lorenzo also said the event will focus a lot on the research pillar of the university. Many hospitals and not-for profit pre-health organizations will be present. A lot of science and research based opportunities will be available to students.

Professional attire or scrubs are required. Lorenzo also said to bring a few copies of your resume. For more information, contact Career Development at 954-262-7201.
