How to Help Students Post a Job/Internship Don’t Cancel Class Skillshop Request

We do what we love and love what we do, which is helping all students design meaningful careers and lives, no matter their major, class level or interest. You play an important role, so here is a few ways you can help join in our mission.

When to Refer Students to the Career Design Center

If you hear a student say any of the following, just send them our way:

  • “I have no idea what I want to major in! What am I going to do after graduation?”
  • “Nothing interests me. I’m not good at anything.”
  • “I thought I was going to do one major and now that just doesn’t seem possible.”
  • “I really want to find an internship.”
  • “I need to job search, but I don’t know how to get started.”

As well as

  • "I don't know how to write a resume."
  • "Why is it important to have a LinkedIn or Bullseye powered by Handshake profile?"
  • "I got a job offer. Now what do I do?"
  • "Why is everyone telling me I have to network? How do I even get started?"
  • "I need help with a big interview that I have coming up."
