Students are encouraged to actively research and explore career opportunities well in advance of graduation. Volunteer, research, internship and seasonal work experiences are all valuable, and each student should find a way to incorporate these experiences into their program (contact the Office of Student and Academic Services for information about earning credit during these experiences). Below is a selected list of resources for use in the job and internship search. This list is not an endorsement of organizations represented, or by any means exhaustive; students are encouraged to research opportunities thoroughly before applying or accepting employment.
