How to go About Getting a Job:

  • Handshake – you'll be able to connect with on and off-campus employers. In addition, it's your "one-stop-shop" for exploring internships and careers within your field, as well as scheduling appointments with your career coach.
  • Check out largest on-campus employers – depending on the time of year these departments may be hiring. Be sure to follow up with them after you apply!
  • Network with your faculty and staff – many of them employ student assistants through available grants. Many of these jobs are not advertised.
  • You may be eligible for work study positions – these limited positions are funded through the Federal Work Study program and are available to students that exhibit financial need. You must have a FAFSA application on file with the Office of Financial Aid to apply for these positions.
