Annual Field Fair

BSW/MSW Field Fair

Why Students Should Attend the Field Fair

The Field Fair is intended for BSW & MSW students who will begin their field placement Fall 2019. The Field Fair provides an opportunity for students to meet with representatives from local social service agencies that will be offering internships for the 2019-20 academic year. Students will have an opportunity to interact with the agencies on an informal basis and acquire information about what a potential field placement at that agency might involve.

A list of agencies attending the Field Fair will be sent out prior to the event. To get the most out of the Fair students are encouraged to research the agencies via the Intern Placement Tracking (IPT) system before attending the event. Come prepared with specific questions that you would like to ask agencies.

*Business attire is suggested
