Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
One of the things that will preoccupy you the most as you approach graduation is the question of whether or not, after all the years of schooling and preparation, you will actually be able to find the job of your dream. This is why USC hires people to help students find jobs and internships, and provides services to ensure that the transition from college to the workplace is as smooth as possible. While the staff at the Career Center is there to help, it is your job to make the effort of going there, taking the time to speak to them, and letting them help you. An early start is always the key to finding a job when the time comes, and if the people at the Career Center already know who you are, it will make your life a whole lot easier.
