"I am very thankful for the Walker EDGE Internship Fair at Webster," said Caitlyn Dailey, a Management major and intern at Edward Jones. "Without it, I would not have easily found an internship or been a part of other great opportunities that have been provided by the firm that I currently an intern. As a working adult and full-time Webster student, getting prepared and going to an Internship Fair seemed like an intimidating task, but it was completely worth the time and effort in the end. I would strongly encourage other students to attend the Internship Fair, so they can find great opportunities for themselves like I was able to."
"The energy in the Edward Jones Commons was amazing! I loved hearing about the prepared and eager students connecting with the various organizations," said Trezette Dixon, assistant director, Employer Relations, Career Planning & Development Center. "This event not only provides a recruiting opportunity for our students but also a lesson in professional and career development, which is a valuable part of the academic process, and couldn't happen without collaboration from the wonderful faculty and staff at Webster."
