Internship and Job Search
There are many jobs and internships available, but finding them can prove to be challenging and sometimes overwhelming. The Career Development Center is here to help you, whether you are a first-year or a senior and whether you are searching for an internship, externship, research position, volunteer experience, summer job, or full-time work.
As you begin to look for opportunities, you will likely rely heavily on online resources and networking. The Career Development Center presents a number of beneficial resources, including:
- Public databases,
- Databases which the Career Development Center subscribes to,
- Opportunities to attend on- and off-campus interviewing days,
- And online resources for opportunities abroad.
In addition to using these resources, consider going directly to company websites and sharing your interests and goals with individuals in your personal network, which consists of family and friends. Did you know that you have access to Colonnade Connections, W&L's online alumni network? Have you used the Get Connected: W&L Student and Alumni Career Network on LinkedIn? These are great networking tools, and many students have shared success stories which they found through a W&L alumnus.
Using a combination of databases, networking, and the assistance of the Career Development Center should land an exciting position. Start looking at the resources, and drop by our office for help with your resume, your search, and preparing for interviews!
