Hungry for experience

Over 150 Wright State University students participated in the fourth annual College of Liberal Arts Internship Partners Expo in the Millett Hall Atrium on March 28.

“The internship expo is crucial to our success as students,” said Kaylee Raines, a senior English major who attended the expo.

The event was attended by 30 employers representing nonprofits, social services, media organizations, the arts and local governments who were looking for Wright State students to fill important roles in their organizations

“Students can talk to the internship providers in an informal environment,” said Wayne Stark, director of workforce development for the College of Liberal Arts.

Several area police departments from Dayton, Miamisburg and Huber Heights were also among the employers that participated in the expo.

“Our most recent intern was from Wright State,” said Nick Lambert, a public affairs officer at the Huber Heights Police Division. “We want to get more interns from their criminal justice program.”

Stark said internship providers love Wright State students because they are hard-working, pay attention and are hungry.

“The bottom line is that the employers like our students, and it’s exciting getting to see them together,” said Stark.
