What is Career & Internship Expo?

The Rollins College Career & Internship Expo is held each year during spring term.  This event is produced by Rollins' career centers representing all of the college's programs (College of Liberal Arts, Crummer Graduate School of Business and the Hamilton Holt Evening Degree Program). If you have questions about this event, please contact the Center for Career and Life Planning at careercenter@rollins.edu or 407-646-2195. Employers who have questions about this event can find out more by visiting the Rollins employer page.

Who Can Attend?

The Rollins College Career & Internship Expo is NOT just for Rollins seniors and alumni, but for first-year students, sophomores, juniors and graduate students too! It is an opportunity to network with employers, learn more about different career fields and job opportunities, and possibly get an internship. Expo also provides a chance for students to gather information about companies with which they may want to work. In fact, we recommend students attend before their senior year to become familiar with the event format to learn about summer or internship positions in fields of interest. 

Students and alumni from other Florida colleges and universities who would like to attend the Rollins Career & Internship Expo should call 407-646-2195 or e-mail careercenter@rollins.edu ahead of time for permission. Individuals who are not Rollins students or alumni will not be permitted to enter the Career & Internship Expo without receiving prior permission. If you are guest of the college who has received approval to attend, please refer to the information at the bottom of this page.

What to Wear & Bring

The dress code for Expo is "business casual" at a minimum; the Center for Career and Life Planning highly recommends "professional" dress -- a business suit or dress.  Both business casual and professional dress styles are pictured in the Professional Attire Guide.

  • Bring a portfolio with copies of your resume, a notepad, pen, and your list of questions for the employer
  • Make sure your resume is reviewed prior to the event by our Center for Career and Life Planning staff and that copies you bring are printed on resume paper.

Be Prepared

Research is an important aspect of the job search process.  After assessing your personal strengths, abilities, values, and interests, you can begin to identify careers, companies, jobs, and environments that fit your unique set of characteristics and preferences. In March, this website will feature a link allowing participants to see a list of organizations attending Expo. Visit the Job Search page to conduct general internet research on industries, companies, occupations and salaries. The more research you do in advance, the more confident you will feel.

Networking & Industry Events

Etiquette Dinner

“The world was my oyster, till I used the wrong fork"
—Oscar Wilde 

Job interviews and business meetings are often conducted at the breakfast, lunch, or dinner table. The Center for Career & Life Planning hosts Etiquette Dinners to help students prepare for these events. Students can enjoy a delicious meal while getting advice and tips on how to conduct themselves during an interview over a meal. Attendees should appear in business attire to practice interview skills.
