Preparing You to Succeed
Our excellent career counselors in the Office of Career Services get in touch with students during their very first term on campus. They offer workshops on resume writing, interviewing, salary negotiations, applying to graduate schools, and other critical skills to help you begin your career successfully.
Use the Career Services center. There are a lot of companies willing to offer internships to get you experience. Also use them to help write your resume and cover letter; they can do a lot. If given an interview, research the company and ask good questions that show your understanding of the company/market.Reed Nothwang '16
