How the Career Center helped
you along the way:
 The Career Center really helped me put together my
resume so it would be more appealing to potential employers. My career counselor
Jeanette, was especially helpful in answering whatever questions I had
concerning my internship search and building my resume. I also found my
internship by searching through the archives of Jeanette’s blog.

Any insights that you have for current students: Visit
the career center to have your resume critiqued before you seriously start
searching for opportunities. Not only will your resume be more polished but you
will also gain insight about how to start your search for jobs/internships. Also
be persistent when looking for internships and ask around for internships
because some organizations don’t advertise that they take
interns.
