Internships are among the most important predictors of career success, allowing students to gain professional experience, build their résumés and explore careers. With that in mind, Oakton Community College is hosting a Jan. 25 spring internship information session and fair at the college’s Skokie campus, Room P103, 7701 N. Lincoln Avenue.

Oakton’s internship program is seeking to fill approximately 75 internship positions with local companies in a variety of fields, including accounting, business, sales, marketing, information technology, manufacturing, graphic design, communications and politics/government. Most positions include compensation between $9-12 per hour.
