ESli Pre-University and Intermediate I-skills classes learned one of the ways Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's Career Development Center helps students find internships and future careers. The event is separated into 3 days—day 1 is all education-related employers; day 2 liberal arts and business; day 3 engineering. Through assignments designed to apply critical thinking skills, ESLi students spoke with employers and observed how to act and dress when looking for a job in the US. In fact, Jihoon Kim, who completed ESLi Summer 2015 and is about to complete his Master's in TESOL, was there sharing his resume!
