2010 Internship + Career Fair was a success!

The 2010 Internship + Career Fair went off Friday without a hitch.  I want to thank all of the employers, students, volunteers, staff and especially the Meyerhoff foundation for their contribution to the event.  It is cliche to say it, however this event REALLY could not have gone the way it did without everyone’s participation.  I will update the blog with the details regarding event attendance and some success stories and more photo’s as we compile the data, but I wanted to take a moment today to thank everyone involved.
