Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Look into all of your resources. Your teachers will be able to give you great advice and help you look for an internship. Many advisers are able to help, as well. Job fairs are usually held in the multi-purpose room in the University Union in the fall and spring semesters. These will provide you a great opportunity to network and see what options are out there. There are also many workshops available, and the Career Services Office will help you fine-tune your resume and practice with mock interviews. The Career Services Web site shows listings for all of the job fairs on campus and in surrounding areas. Additionally, it provides students with example resumes and listings for on- and off-campus jobs.
