The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Academic and Career Development Center (ACDC) held its annual Career and Internship Fair Thursday, March 1.
Around 700 students gathered at Baxter Arena to meet some of 130 different companies that included Boys Town, Mutual of Omaha, First National Bank and Pacific Life.
While meeting these potential employers, students had the opportunity to introduce themselves, learn about the company, drop off their resumes and even participate in same day interviews.
Students also had the chance to get a professional headshot and talk to ACDC staff for one-the-spot career coaching – all at Baxter Arena.
ACDC’s goal is to use the fair as a catalyst to exploring different career opportunities in one setting. Helping students thrive through work and internship opportunities, the event allows students to develop new industry contacts while also allowing them to practice their networking skills.
ACDC holds a Career and Internship Fair in both the Fall and Spring semesters. In the last academic year, ACDC has helped more than 8,500 current students, prospective students, families, alumni, faculty, and staff through fairs, one-on-advising, workshops, and classroom presentations.
