Search for a Job / Internship

To find a job or internship, you must first know what you want and then make a plan to start the search process.

Figure out what you have to offer a company using your skills, knowledge, and experience – these are things you can highlight on your resume.

Once your resume reflects your assets, it’s time to begin the search process. Your searching can include multiple sources:  networking, online job sites, and looking directly on company websites.

Our office is here to help throughout your job or internship planning process! Make an appointment for further assistance in resume critique, networking and/or job/internship search.

In the meantime, don’t worry if you don’t receive an offer right away. Landing a position can take time, patience, and consistency.

Security Alert
As you search for positions, be it part-time, full-time, or internship, please be aware of scams targeting the job-hunting population. For example:
1. A representative from a valid company name may contact you about a job.
2. You do a phone interview, and are told that you are hired.
3. They send you a “bonus” signing check. You are told to provide your name, address, SSN, and banking information (for direct deposit of paycheck). You provide this information.
4. You deposit the check and find out 3-10 days later that the check was fraudulent. Meanwhile, your bank account is cleared out.

Therefore, NEVER give out your social security number and banking information to ANYONE over e-mail or the phone. Please contact us at the Office of Career and Professional Development if you ever have a question about the validity of a job offer, or suspect suspicious activity. We will investigate and let you know our findings.
