Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Visit Career Planning & Resources soon after arriving on Scripps' campus. You can develop a relationship with the staff and begin working on the fundamentals (resumés, cover letters, and interviewing) before you're actively engaged in a search. Start your search early. Some internships have deadlines during the fall semester and that is also the time when the on-campus recruiting schedule is at its peak. Network with lots of people-faculty, alumnae, other students, family friends, the family of your friends, relatives, and so forth. You never know where a potential job lead might present itself. Brainstorm organizations in which you may be interested. Research their Web site, or contact them directly to find out about potential openings. Find a contact in the department you're interested in and send them your resumé and cover letter, even if no opening exists. Do not judge any job or internship by its cover! Many jobs and internships may sound dull or too difficult to get, but it may turn out to be great, and you may just be their perfect fit, so do research and try to talk to the organizations directly.Be sure to always tailor your resumé and cover letter so that it's targeted to the specific position you are applying for.
