The Big 'I'

Internships give Anderson students the chance to get the skills they need, build a significant professional network, and start out in the job market with a polished resume and plenty of interview practice!  By completing one or two internships while working toward a degree, Anderson students can significantly impact their chances of landing a professional career that utilizes their education and individual skill set.

In the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ 2014 Job Outlook survey, 96% of employers said that relevant work experience is the most important factor in their hiring decision.  Another national survey conducted by revealed that 66% of employers believe interview performance and relevant work experience are the most important factors —far more significant than strong academic performance.  Furthermore, the research says that 70% of companies made full-time job offers to their interns.

On Thursday, January 30th, in the Jackson Student Center, Anderson students have the opportunity to open doors to new opportunities, meet community business leaders and build their confidence as they transition from student to professional. Employers from Sandia National Laboratories and New Mexico State Personnel Office, to National Electric/Nicor, Array Technologies and Colliers International will be sending recruiters to connect with students. 

The BBA Fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; the MBA/MACCT Fair runs from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
