Summer internships? ‘Just ask me’

The Career Center at Washington University in St. Louis encouraged students to network with each other and talk about their summer travels, internships and community service during an event outside Danforth University Center Sept. 8. After filling out a career interest survey, students were treated to free ice cream and a T-shirt that says ‘Just ask me about my summer’ on the back — along with Sharpie pens to write their answers. Above, freshman Sarah Guggenheimer (left) gets a shirt from the center’s communications coordinator Lauren Stapel. Below, students (from left) junior Nathan Brodell, doctoral student Gang Xu, senior Parsa Bastani and freshman Divya Rayapati make good use of the Sharpies and write their answers on the back of their new shirts. The Career Center is using the survey information collected that day to send targeted information about job and internship opportunities to students via email.
