Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Oftentimes, internship experience is a requirement for graduation. Most students won't have a hard time finding one, given that many academic departments have established relationships with employers, both local and national. Career Services is a good place to go when looking for internships, but remember to tap the connections of your professors, as well. It's a good idea to secure internships and job-related experience as soon as possible. You may not start at the top, but any experience you garner can help you secure a better internship or job in the future.
