View these employers by major and research those of interest. Those who have hired interns and co-ops in the past may do so in the future. Those who have hired new grads may also offer internships or other pre-graduation experience.
- Read your academic department website! Many departments post internships and jobs on their site.
- Watch for email from your academic department. We send job announcements to academic departments so that they can forward these notices on to their students.
- Visit your academic department. Look for bulletin boards where internships and jobs are posted.
- Over 90% of our graduates tell us they had career-related experience during college.
- Even so, 1/3 wished they had gotten more.
- So that tells you to get multiple experiences!
- Use all the ways to get experience, including field study, part-time jobs, summer jobs, volunteering, service-learning, shadowing, para-professional opportunities, co-op, undergraduate research, extracurricular involvement and leadership. Depending on your major and your career field, other terminology may be used and other types of experience are valuable.
