Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Old Dominion University's Career Management Center is like this magnetic megalith-it is seriously helpful for students who are looking for an internship to augment their current studies or a job to show the world that their English degree didn't go to waste like everyone thought it would. The Career Management Center is beyond capable. Befriend every single professor you know, and stay in touch with the Career Management Center on campus. The more people you know, the more people know you-meaning that in the case that job opportunities arise, your name may be the one they inscribe in black ink. Also-be and stay involved in campus activities to help make a name for yourself.
