How do you find the right job or internship? Whether you’re looking for full-time or part-time opportunities, on-campus or off-campus, you can count on the Career Design Center for advice and connections throughout your search.
The secret is out! We're sharing our hacks to finding the right job or internship for you.
👇 Here's how.
The first P is easy. You can find and apply to positions posted in Bullseye powered by Handshake, Interstride and Beyond the Professoriate.
Interstride gathers all the information and resources you’ll need in one simple platform to help you find both domestic and international internship and job opportunities. You'll also find advice, insights, and tools you'll need for a successful abroad job search.
Beyond the Professoriate's Career Training Platform helps graduate students, postdocs and PhDs successfully transition into academic or nonacademic careers.
Prospecting is the process of identifying potential employers that you'd like to work for and targeting your research to see if that company is the right fit for you.
After you find postings and different employers, you can work on finding people. This is also known as networking, or as we like to call it, making professional friends.
Making professional friends means finding and reaching out to people, especially UB alumni, who work at companies with opportunities or companies where you would like to work.
Ways you can connect with UB alumni and professionals
80 percent of jobs are landed through networking and personal relationships. So if you're only applying to postings, you're missing a bunch of opportunities.
