The Center for Professional Development (CPD) provides access to internship and job listings via a number of different websites, detailed below. CPD recommends a four-pronged approach to finding jobs and internships. As a candidate, structure your search to:
- Research and identify industries that match your goals and interests
- Identify individual companies and organizations whose reputations and expertise appeal to you.
- Network with alumni and personal contacts working in the field or the specific company you're interested in.
- Consult with sites, such as those described below, which list current job and internship openings.
Notice that searching current openings is only part of the process. Candidates who take a holistic approach that incorporates industry and company-level searches, in combination with networking, tend to be more successful than those who rely on job and internship postings alone. The Jobs & Internships Guide, accessible through the DartBoard Research Library, provides best practices and additional resources for your search.
To maximize your search, read the Jobs & Internships Guide and book an appointment with an advisor.
