EXPERIENCE: Internships and Jobs

Looking for a job or internship and don't know where to start? The Career Center is here to help, whether you’re a student looking to gain experience while still in school, or an alum looking to transition to something new. We offer tools to help you confidently find, apply and interview for and negotiate your next position. Keep in mind that 80% of positions are found through referrals and networking, so we still suggest that you focus on engaging with professionals, alumni and employers in your areas of interest. Check out our ENGAGE: Advice and Guidance section for more information. 

We have launched a new off campus internship & job database, Handshake, to assist in discovering a variety of national and international opportunities with hundreds of local and non-local organizations. Handshake continually personalizes career recommendations based on your profile, interests and connections. For login help, click here.
