Please come dressed to impress, research the organizations, bring copies of your approved resume and rehearse your elevator pitch to introduce yourself to employers.  The elevator pitch doesn’t have to be more complicated than this:

Hello, my name is Mary and I am a junior in Psychology. I have recently volunteered in the YMCA in their summer program and I learned I want to dedicate my career to working with children. I see you have some internships open at your school. Could you tell me more about them and how to apply?  

Who are you (major/class year), what are you particularly good at and what do you want to learn from the employer?

It will be fun! See you there! Contact a career coach if you have any questions
