Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
In preparing for a job search, students typically fall into one of two extremes. Some students shape their entire college experience towards getting that first job, like that kid who's dreamed of being an FBI agent since the early `90s when he or she stayed up on Sunday night to watch the X-Files. On the other side of the coin, most students are shell-shocked when they realize sometime during senior year that they won't be at UB forever. However, it's possible to find a middle ground-a way to experience UB on your own terms and still be ready to get a good job when your time's up. The key is to take the classes you want, have the summer experiences you want, and join the clubs you want. At the same time, get to know as many of your professors as you can; take advantage of academic opportunities, including research; and visit the Office of Career Services early and regularly. You won't sell your soul to the FBI (or to Silicon Valley, Wall Street, or Capitol Hill), but you'll be ready to get jobs there when you graduate. Ironically, the people who will be most useful to you in the job search are also people who don't have real jobs: professors. While most students think they're most useful for recommendations, they can also get you involved in the study groups and research projects that make your resumé shine. At UB, the Office of Career Services is also an invaluable resource, and not just late in your college career when the job search is thrust upon you. Visit the office right away in your freshman year. It's far too small for a school of UB's size, so it's tough to make an appointment, but do it anyway. You'll probably like your counselor. (They seem like they're trained to be likeable at a friendliness boot camp.) Everyone's warm and smiley, and the offices are painted in happy colors like your old pediatrician's waiting room. After your first visit, go back to the same counselor once every semester. At the very least, they'll get you thinking about the inevitable job search, and you'll have a friendly face in Capen Hall who knows your name.
