The Fashion Design Department hosts its Internship Fair annually in the Spring semester. During the Fair, we welcome a diverse selection of industry recruiters from dozens of leading design brands to meet with Junior students, to provide practical feedback on their work, and recruit for job and internship openings for the summer.
The Internship takes place in the classroom spaces inside the Academic Building. It is organized like a speed-interviewing event: Company recruiters are set up at assigned tables where they meet students for mini-interviews within ten-minute time slots. Students provide copies of their résumés, and few images of their design work for reference. This is an excellent opportunity to practice interviewing skills and develop lasting connections with potential employers.
The 2018 Internship Fair hosted brands like Ralph Lauren, Vince, PacSun, Mattel, Adidas, Guess?, Tadashi and Urban Outfitters, among many others. 92% of Juniors who actively sought an internship were placed in positions within the fashion industry.
