Last night’s CXP Internship Social kicked off well with a diverse group of business representatives and talented students from several colleges packed into the CO.LAB space.

It was a full night (and room) of exchanging ideas, business needs, and interests with each other. The crowd made it difficult to communicate from afar, but close, face-to-face connections between the students and businesses was what we set out to create! It was exciting, fascinating even, to see the energy build in a room full of that many intelligent, motivated, creative people. Many of us made some good connections and met some fun, interesting people.

For all the students who couldn’t make it, here is a quick listing of the skills and traits that different businesses are currently looking for. If you think you could fit into one of these roles, give them a shout, or get in touch with us to get connected with them.
