Job & Internship Search Techniques
To make the most of this information, schedule an appointment (385-8050) with a Career Counselor to specifically discuss your job and internship search strategies and questions.
Confident, hard working students who have internship, volunteer or work experience in their field are attractive candidates. Those who also display professionalism in behavior and dress as well as strong communication skills stand out. The Career Center offers workshops in all these areas. Take advantage of all of them!
- Read our Perfecting the Interview [pdf] guide in the Resource Library in CareerZone
- Research the company thoroughly and prepare a couple of questions
- If at all possible, participate in a mock interview through the Career Center or with an alumni mentor in your field; alumni mentors can be found through Fisher Connects in the CareerZone
Meet with a Career Counselor to discuss various factors to your decision, including your values, personal monetary needs etc. NEVER accept a position and then accept another, thus reneging on the first.
Career Counselors are happy to meet with you to explore alternate career choices and show you additional resources. Contact the Career Center at 385-8050 to make an appointment.
The informational interview focuses on you asking someone else about what their job entails. View our Networking & the Informational Interview [pdf] guide in the Resource Library in CareerZone to get started.
