Searching for a job is an important process and Career Development is here to assist you. Your job search includes having a strong resume and cover letter, practicing interviewing, engaging in career networking and social media, and using multiple resources for identifying opportunities in government, business, non-profit, performing arts and other career fields.
We are currently in the process of upgrading to a new job and internship posting system, which will also feature job search resources. Our new system will be available in early August.
