Throughout the afternoon, there will be presentations on everything from how to prepare for a job interview to how to find funding for your summer, and we’ll have plenty of cotton candy, popcorn, ice cream, and hoagies for lunch. Whether you’re planning to stay in Chicago or want to spend the summer somewhere else in the U.S. or abroad, you’ll find what you need at SummerFest!

Remember to bring along a copy of your resume so that staff from Northwestern Career Advancement can help you polish it for whatever you want to do this summer.
