Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
  • As a freshman, don't expect to know exactly what you want to end up doing in four years. Many students change majors once, twice, or even three or more times. As students mature and find subject areas that interest them, new opportunities and curiosities often arise. Throughout it all, your academic adviser and the IC Career Services will be there to assist you, and with a degree from IC, you should be on the right path to finding your dream job.
  • The Career Services department at IC offers many resources to find an internship. When it comes time to enter the working world, Career Services will help students with their searches. Through Network Nights and job fairs, many students gain valuable connections and are given the opportunity to meet potential employers. Students usually start trying to find an internship for the upcoming summer shortly after they arrive to school in the fall. By talking to peers who have had internships in similar fields in the past, many students find connections. Professors and IC grads can also be a valuable asset in finding internships because of their experience in specific fields. Many professional organizations that deal with students' majors operate websites that have internship databases on them. Don't be afraid to go to Career Services to learn more information about an internship or job.
  • Utilize Career Services programs, set up a mock interview, and let them critique your resumé and cover letter. Money from each student's tuition goes toward Career Services, so students should take full advantage.
  • Whether during the school year or in the summertime, most students have had at least one internship before they graduate from IC. Most internships occur the summer after a students' sophomore and junior years in college. In today's highly competitive job market, most prospective employers expect to see some kind of related experience in a graduate's field.
