Job Resources

Securing the best job or internship often involves more than simply searching open positions. It takes time and can be stressful, but the Career Center is here to support students toward a successful search through personalized career coaching and resources.

Job Search Handbook

 

This handbook provides strategies for conducting a job search, developing your personal brand, applying, interviewing, evaluating job offers, and tips for succeeding in your first year on the job. 

If you’d like to discuss your job or internship search with a career coach, be sure to set up your appointment in Handshake
