Question: When do employers hire/recruit for summer interns?

Employers have told us they hire most of their summer interns by the end of December. So, if you want a 2013 summer internship, most employers will hire those interns by the end of 2012. That means you need to be prepared to apply for internships by the fall. Check out more information about internships on the OSU Career Services website and if you need help preparing your resume, cover letter, networking, and interviewing…we can help with that too! And remember Fall Career Fair is on October 24th and the Engineering Career Fair is on October 25th…great place to meet a lot of employers recruiting OSU students and possibly land an internship!
