Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
  • Make frequent use of the Office of Career Services. Most students overlook this office in the Roscoe P. West Old Library or are unaware of its existence. The staff is extremely helpful with career counseling, offering aptitude and vocation tests, guidance, and catalogs of places that usually hire students. Most students who use Career Services find a job.
  • On-campus jobs are relatively rare. This usually means applying ahead of time is vital. Students begin sending in applications online to on-campus sites midway through the semester preceding the one they wish to work. Most of these jobs are simple and involve reception, filing, and delivering items. Some other popular jobs with students are in the school's IT office; these usually require some hardware and software knowledge. Keep your GPA high because many on-campus employers judge your ability to work by your GPA.
  • Working full time on a schedule of three or more units is a costly mistake. If a student works full time, he or she is best advised to take one or two classes at most.
  • Working off campus is not preferable because most jobs are in stores and eateries along the highway, which means commuting and sometimes facing rush hour. Furthermore, employers off campus are generally not as lenient as on-campus employers on the student's schedule. For example, most places require a student to work a minimum of 15 to 17 hours; some require 20. This is doable in the beginning of the semester, but it is a mistake to work these hours during the middle and end of the semester. However, many students find they need money to make ends meet. In this case, time management is the key, and working ahead in classes is highly beneficial.
  • Your adviser and department have information on internship sites that the College has coordinated with in the past. Usually, these documents are on your department's website. Also, the career center can help in finding an internship. If a student has found him or herself an internship outside of these methods, the student must coordinate the process with his or her adviser and the Office of Records & Registration.
