Internships Are The First Step In The Job Search
Internship vs. Job: Internships often lead to affirmation of what type of job you want to pursue. In addition, many CFAES students are extended full-time job offers from their internship sites. When considering internships and jobs it is important to consider your interests, skills, what you hope to get out of the experience and what you have to offer the employer. Below are some steps to help you get started on your internship search.
- Meet with a Career Counselor to develop your resume and work on a plan of action for your search
- Start your search through Handshake and the College Career Expos
- Attend a workshop for help with Career Expo prep, resume writing, and many more career development activities
- Attend networking events relevant to the field you are looking to work in the future
- Check with the Internship Coordinator from your Department for guidelines on using your internship for academic credit
