On April 4, Salt Lake Community College, in partnership with Student Employment Cooperative Education Services and the Utah Department of Workforce Services, held their first Digital Arts and Internship Fair at South City Campus in the new Atrium.
The Atrium was filled with vendors representing the Digital Arts Industry and organizations involved with employment and higher education. Each vendor had a table with a representative to explain their business. Many of the vendors had internships available, some had paid internships.
“I feel my confidence level has been boosted from this fair,” says Beverly Romero, SLCC Student. [click for Video Interview]
