Job & Internship Search

Additional Job Search Tools

The most successful job and internship seekers employ a variety of strategies. They start the process early, focus their pursuits, and develop an action plan. They commit energy and time to the search.

As a first step, you must define your end goal. You will want to find the balance between being too broad and too specific in your interests. When you focus too broadly, your search may feel overwhelming, as everything is a potential opportunity. When you focus too narrowly, your search may feel like finding a needle in a haystack. Instead, start by reflecting on what you are looking to gain from the experience and what you want in your future job or internship.
