Are you planning to take an unpaid internship position over the summer, but aren’t sure you can afford to? The UMKC Career Services Internship Stipend Program allows current UMKC students to receive assistance while working an unpaid internship. The program provides four students with a $4000 stipend to support an unpaid internship of at least 300 hours during the summer semester.
In order to qualify for the stipend, a student must meet the following requirements:
- Be a UMKC student in good standing and have completed at least 24 college credits
- Be legally eligible to work in the United States
- Have been offered an unpaid internship
- Complete an application and submit all required documents and materials
- Preference will be given to undergraduate students
- Preference will be given to students in the College of Arts and Sciences
- Have never been awarded a UMKC Career Services Internship Stipend
The application deadline for the stipend is April 1, 2015. Any questions you might have can be directed to Erin Christensen at firstname.lastname@example.org
Imagine sitting down to a formal meal at a job interview or scholarship reception only to be confronted with an array of utensils and a barrage of glassware. Which fork do you use? Which small plate is yours? Where do you put your knife?
Don’t let such questions make you nervous in front of your prospective employer or scholarship donor. Attend UMKC Career Services’ Etiquette Dinner on Wednesday, October 15th in the Student Union from 6-8pm. Learn proper etiquette so you can focus on making a good first impression!
Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance—if you haven’t gotten yours yet, there’s still time: deadline is October 9th. Stop by UMKC Career Services in the Atterbury Student Success Center (2nd floor).
* Monday, September 29th is for all Majors
* Tuesday, September 30th is for STEM Majors
This is a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with a variety of employers–see which companies are participating by logging-in to your Roo Career Network account!
Tips and suggestions:
- Bring multiple copies of your resume
- Dress professionally–conservative dark suits and dress shoes are ideal for this setting
- Prepare a 30-60 second “values statement” to concisely–yet definitively–stand out from the crowd
- Meet with as many of the employers as you can–you may be surprised at a potential fit you hadn’t thought of before
- Don’t miss out!
