As May, graduation and summer loom closer, one thought is prevalent on students’ minds.
But students aren’t the only ones thinking about internships. Local companies take advantage of the talent available at UNC by offering dozens of paid and unpaid jobs year round.
Many of these companies will be highlighted in today’s University Career Services’ Internship Fair.
3 Birds Marketing, an advertising company in Chapel Hill, has employed several UNC students since coming to the area.
“They love having college students from UNC,” said Hannah Watts, a senior public relations major who currently holds an internship with 3 Birds.
“A lot of companies recognize that we put out a lot of really good students,” Watts said.
Watts heard about the internship through the School of Journalism and Mass Communication newsletter, which comes out every Monday.
“We look for someone who is ready to come in and be kind of self-directed,” said Emily Farrar, social media strategist and account manager for 3 Birds and as well as a UNC graduate.
