How to use the Career Center's Resources
For anyone seeking internships, job opportunities, service programs, fellowships, and funding, or for anyone just trying to figure out what kind of major to choose or which career path to take, the Career Center can help.
- Check out the Tunnel, the new jobs and internships database. Register your profile and upload your resume, and start looking around for positions!
- Keep an eye on the Career Bulletin, which posts upcoming information sessions and various internships and job opportunities.
- Come down to the basement of Sayles and look through the Career Center's books and binders of information about internships in government, public policy, NGOs, and more.
- Go to the Alumni Directory and search for alumni by major, city and state, job type, place of work, etc. Contacting alumni is a great way to get an idea of various career paths that you may want to pursue, and also generally excellent networking to find out about job and internship opportunities. Alumni are incredibly helpful and can give you a great insight into your fields of interest. You may even be able to construct an externship with an alum, or find out about positions at their orgs that you wouldn’t have been able to find out about otherwise. If you’d like some advice on how to contact alumni effectively (and appropriately), swing by the Career Center in the basement of Sayles.
Resumes/Cover Letters/Personal Statements
- Need some help writing one of the above? Stop by the Career Center 1-5 Mon-Fri or 3rd Libe next to the pc lab, 8-10 Sun-Thur, to get advice from Career Assistants. Also, keep an eye out for workshops that will be held throughout the term on writing effective resumes and cover letters.
- Take a look at the resume and cover letter guide, a good general overview which includes multiple samples of resumes and cover letters for your reference.
