NCAND Internship Fair

The North Carolina Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NCAND) is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting an Annual Internship Fair in conjunction with the most centrally located NCAND Regional Meeting (usually the December Meeting)
As a participating internship program, you will have access to talk about and sell your program to all participating students via a large group sessions, access to answer individual questions as students walk around the fair floor, one-on-one appointment slots with students, and access to RDNs that could serve as potential preceptors for your program. We also encourage you to bring a current intern with you; they will have an opportunity to discuss their internship experience with the students and/or present a project they are working on.

(EXAMPLE SCHEDULE)
The internship fair will begin around 9:30 am and end prior to 4:00 pm with a breakdown as follows:

• 9:45-10:45am – large group session where all internship directors are given some time to broadly discuss their program to the entire group of students
• 10:45-11:15am - break for ALL meeting participants (RDNs and students can visit your table during this time; students can sign up for one-on-one appointments)
• 11:15am-12:15pm – large group session where current interns are able to speak about their experience and/or present a project, case study, etc. to the entire group of students
• 12:15-1:15pm- Lunch for ALL meeting participants

• 2:15-2:45pm - break for ALL meeting participants
• 2:45-3:45pm - one-on-one appointments between students and programs/schools
We have invited all ACEND accredited internship programs in NC, SC, and VA to attend and encourage you to pass this information along to your students as well.

We hope that you will find this event to be a benefit to both you and the students in our area. I strongly believe we can make this opportunity a wonderful experience for everyone involved and can continue this for years to come - learning and refining it along the way!

We have been able to provide approximately 15% off our usual vendor fees for this event from $350 to $300 (for participating internship programs only). Your registration will include an exhibit table, space for 2 representatives from your school to attend (each additional rep must pay the registration fees for the meeting) as well as space for 1 intern, lunch, and access to the Regional Meeting's educational sessions.
