Internship Workshop on Google+ Hangouts
InternMatch, a site with internship listings and resources for students, is hosting a day-long internship workshop hosted by the Google+ platform through a Hangout On Air on February 29th with speakers from CBS Interactive, Google, Ashoka, Salesforce, Sirius XM Radio and Nestle Purina Pet Care. The event will cover topics from “How to Network as a Freshman” to “How to Turn an Internship Into a Job.” Speakers will include Jeff Moore, Google’s lead engineering recruiter, Ben Wald, an Ashoka SVP, and many more.
Google+’s new Hangout On Air feature is basically a Hangout that is publicly live-broadcasted. Students can head to InternMatch’s Google+ profile on February 29th to view the Hangout, which starts at 10 A.M. PST. New speakers will be on every hour 5 P.M, but people can come and go as they please throughout the day. Directly after the speaking sessions, InternMatch is running a marathon resume hangout where students can join to get resume, cover letter, and interview help. If you want to ask any of the speakers a question about internship/job hunting, career advice, or anything else you’d like to know, comment on this post.
