Plan to attend the 2013 Internship Mania
More than 90 organizations will be on campus to discuss internship opportunities with University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students at the 2013 Internship Mania. The event will be held on February 6, 2013, from 10 am to 3 pm in the UW-Eau Claire Davies Center Dakota Ballroom.
An Early Morning Employer Social, an informal breakfast with employers, will be held prior to the start of the event from 8-10 am in the Davies Center Alumni Room. All UW-Eau Claire students are invited to attend both events.
A booklet listing organizations coming to Internship Mania and the internships they have available this year is available in Career Services on Friday, February 1st. See information below for a preview of companies attending the event.
The College of Business encourages all business students, even those students who aren't ready for an internship, to attend Internship Mania. The event is a great opportunity to network and develop future contacts. Students looking for an internship can use the event to introduce themselves to prospective employers and learn more about their recruiting process. Freshmen and sophomore business students can discover more about the companies that typically come to campus and the internships they have available.
Be sure to read the Internship Mania overview before you attend Internship Mania. The site provides a step-by-step list of things you can do to research companies, prepare your resume and sharpen your interview skills. It also gives you tips for meeting the recruiters and following up with them after your meeting.

We encourage all College of Business students to participate in at least one internship before they graduate from UW-Eau Claire. As an intern, you will learn more about your chosen profession, meet new people, and gain confidence. Completing an internship may also aid your job search as most companies use an internship as an opportunity to pre-screen prospective employees. Internships taken for credit may be used as electives in most business degree programs.

Should you put high school information on your college resume?
By Dr. Paula Lentz, Business Communication Program Director
The short answer is that you should not. Because you are in college, it’s evident that you graduated from high school, so you can better use the space on your resume for presenting your college accomplishments. In addition, while your high school activities and achievements were great for showing your potential for college success, employers want to know that you continued to develop your interests and talents in college. If high school achievements appear on your college resume, you may look like your best work is behind you, like you are not interested in personal development, or like you are not the kind of person who is fully investing in your college education.
There are some exceptions. For example, if you are a freshman who has not yet had a chance to distinguish yourself in leadership roles at the college level, you may want to list your high school leadership activities along with your current college activities. You may also have unique high school. Keep in mind, though, that these activities must be truly unique. That is, being elected to the National Honor Society for your high school is not unique; being a National Merit Scholar is. Being the captain of a high school sports team is not unique; being a junior Olympian is.
With over 250 student organizations on campus, building your résumé through campus involvement and leadership is easy. Find a few activities you enjoy and volunteer for leadership positions, and in no time, you’ll have a college-level resume that employers will notice.
