Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Visit the career fairs offered several times throughout the year. This includes job recruiting, community service hiring fairs, and non-profit hiring fairs. Also, frequently check the career center's GatorJOBS website; they often have fun, high-paying jobs listed across the San Francisco Bay Area, or on campus (like working as a tutor, translator, or in the music or film industry). Craigslist is another valuable resource for finding jobs in this vibrant city.
