Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
  • If you're up for doing anything, it's fairly easy to find a job on campus. A great place to start looking is studentemployment.uchicago.edu. Almost every campus job is posted there. If you're looking for short-term employment or just something in the area, you can look at marketplace.uchicago.edu. You can also sell things on the site-it's like a personalized University of Chicago eBay.
  • Toward the end of your college career, when you're looking for a real-life job, the Career Advising and Planning Services is an excellent resource. They'll help you with resumes, interviews, and cover letters, and they have a huge database of alumni that are willing to be contacted about jobs. The University wants you to work, and it's fairly easy to do so on campus.
