Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
  • Attend any job fairs in order to practice talking to potential employers, and above all, don't get discouraged. You might apply to numerous places before you even get a callback.
  • Search everywhere—the most unconventional search methods can really pay off. Check out craigslist.org for internship offers. Find out if your major offers any internship programs, too.
  • Start networking your first semester. You never know if a friend or professor might be able to help you out later.
  • When finding a job or an internship, go to the Career Center where they can help you write a résumé, cover letter, and prepare for an interview. Internships usually have application deadlines, so begin your search early in the semester. Let people-your friends, professors, and staff-know what you are looking for because they might bring an opportunity to the table.
