Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
  • SJU has a great website called CareerLink where any student of any level of undergraduate studies can find an internship and apply even if its not for credit and just for experience value.
  • Start looking early for a job or internship; they fill quickly. Also, finding a job is like a job in itself; be persistent and constantly have your résumé on hand to send out. Not only sign up with the Career Center, but also sign up to many Internet job/internship sites, as well. Be sure to talk to your dean about any internship you receive; they may be willing to give you credit for your work.
