Jobs and Internships

Career-related experiences through paid internships, externships, or informal volunteer settings are important ways to explore your career interests. In addition, many professional and graduate schools require experience in the field before admission, and many employers require industry experience before hiring.

A successful job-search requires multiple strategies and often builds on your prior career-related experience. Some students can effectively conduct their job search as a student while others are more successful after graduation. Diligence, patience, and perseverance are essential. Do your research. Investigate career fields, organization, employers, industries, and more.

Professional career counselors in Human Ecology’s Career Development Office can help you talk through your goals and organize a job search plan. Stop by 172 MVR or call us at (607) 255-2532 to schedule an appointment.
