It might only be February, but it’s time to start making your summer plans. And I’m not talking about vacation (well, maybe that too). It’s time to update your resume and look for a summer internship, or if you’re graduating — a grown-up job! For those lucky enough to live in Austin or NYC, Ketner Group is headed to a career fair near you.
What You Need to Know
When, you ask? Well, the magic date for Spring 2019 career fairs appears to be Feb. 27.
For UT Austin students, you can find Ketner Group at the Communication Job & Internship Fair. The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CT on the 8th Floor of Darrell K. Royal in the North End Zone. If you’re a junior or senior with PR internship experience, we’d love for you to stop by and hear about our summer internship opportunities. Additionally, we’re always on the hunt for all-star account coordinators, so if you’re graduating this spring, then visit us to learn how you can start your career with KG.
Also on Feb. 27, we’ll be making our NYC internship fair debut at NYU. From 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., I will be at the NYU Kimmel Center, hunting for KG’s first-ever NYC intern. If you’re entering or in your junior or senior year of undergraduate studies or completed your first year of graduate school, and have relevant PR internship experience, I’d love to meet you!
How to Prepare
If this will be your first career or internship fair, don’t fret. Instead, check out our blogs for advice on career fairs and applying for PR jobs. You’ll find helpful tips on how to prepare, what to wear, and much more. If nothing else, I suggest spending some time researching the companies that will be attending and identifying which opportunities best align with your career goals and objectives. And if all else fails, make sure to bring plenty of copies of your resume!
See You Soon
Whether you’re in NYC or Austin, we look forward to seeing you on Feb. 27. If you’re unable to make it, always feel free to send your resume to [email protected].
