Firm Information

Thank you for your firm's interest in our annual UNL College of Architecture Internship / Career Fair! This is a key moment when firms and students, academia and practice, come together and UNL students are excited to meet with you at the College.

Our Internship / Career Fair is a convenient and efficient opportunity for your firm to meet with multiple UNL students in a short period of time, and for you to get to know each other on a personal level. Prospective employers and students can schedule as many as twenty meetings in a day, in 20-minute intervals. We hope that, upon a positive initial meeting at the Career Fair, your firm will invite candidates for internships to visit your firm, either during, or near their 2020 Spring Vacation (March 22-29).

You have the choice of signing up in half day blocks, on February 20th and 21st. Once your firm registers, interview times will be available for student sign-ups between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm on both days, with a one-hour break for lunch. Your firm is invited to send as many as three representatives for each interview space. Each interview space will have a table, and enough chairs for your team and one student. We will provide pin-up surfaces for display materials, electrical service, and access to our Wi-Fi network. If your firm is planning to interview a mix of students, i.e. per degree program, summer internship or full-time employment, or more than 20 students in one day, you are encouraged to register for more than one interview booth. As it is our desire to hold this important event within Architecture Hall, we are providing a maximum of 32 interview booths, each offering 20 interview opportunities, per day.

The College is currently working with our students to prepare their portfolios and resumes for them to bring to their interviews. Students are expected to research each firm with whom they schedule interviews, and they will upload their interview packages by January 8th, making them available for your review prior to the event.
