WHY ATTEND THE MIDWINTER MASHUP?
We understand you probably want to spend your break watching TikToks and taking some well-deserved naps, which is why we created the perfect, low-commitment Midwinter Mashup. For just a few hours over three days, you can gain the confidence you need to land a part-time job or internship.
You'll get tips from career experts on a wide range of topics, including:

Building a strong resume and knowing how to network and communicate effectively can help you secure an internship or summer job before others start looking. Whether you plan to go to college or straight into a career after high school, the job-hunting skills you learn will help you prepare for the future.

DO I NEED AN INTERNSHIP IN HIGH SCHOOL?
Internships may not be a prerequisite for college or trade school admittance, but they can help you build your portfolio and give you a competitive edge on your resume or college application. At the very least, you'll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a career or company you want to learn more about.
