Google, Morgan Stanley, and Accenture are among a number of employers visiting the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus this week to chat with students about career and internships opportunities.
Their arrival coincides with the inaugural Internship Week, Nov. 9–13, hosted by the JHU Career Center. Each day they will host a different event aimed at preparing students for internships.
"We're hoping to be able to give students the skills and tools to land an internship," said Kayla Toering, internship lead at the Career Center.
Throughout the week, peer assistants will set up shop across campus to review resumes, just in time for face-to-face meetings with future employers. Pizza Hut, Himmelrich PR, Johns Hopkins Magazine, Accenture, The Applied Physics Laboratory, Morgan Stanley, Janney Montgomery Scott, University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, AARP The Magazine, Elevi, Northrop Grumman, The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, Genetech, and Google will have representatives on campus to speak with students and, in some cases, recruit.
