Advice on Finding a Job/Internship
Get in touch with the career center and with teachers in your department to find jobs and internships. The career center has a complete listing of jobs available in the area, as well as internships from around the country on TopJobs (WKU job search system). Professors and staff understand that internships are extremely important to finding a job when you graduate, and they are usually willing to go above and beyond to help you find something if you are willing to just ask.
