Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Visiting the office of Career Services can be very helpful, and it's good to check out the Career Center way before you think you'll need it. It may be able to help you pick a major, find an internship, and eventually find a career. The Career Center is in contact with all types of businesses, so using the Career Center is great networking. Professors and academic advisors are another great source for help in finding a job or internship. Many professors and graduate students at Virginia Tech are involved in research and will often hire undergrads to help with their research.
