Summer Employment – Gain Experience & Build Your Resume

Summer-Calendar-iStock_000018598361XSmall1

The summer months are often the time when college students are seeking a job. As you search for options keep in mind key factors when looking for opportunities and selecting the “best” job. Finances certainly are a need, but this is the time to build your resume with experiences that are related to your intended major or career direction.  Positions vary from part-time and full-time to internship and can be found in many organizations. Think about places that are open or have an uptick of business during summer months as they will most likely have more of a need to fill positions. You may also think about combining several positions: one that pays more with another than may be volunteer or part-time in a field of interest to develop skills and network.

As you explore options check out Tommie Careers – there are nearly 1,800 jobs (seasonal, part-time and full-time) and internships posted todayIf you would benefit from further information about this topic or would like to discuss a plan, attend the seminar, Finding Summer Employment, on Thursday, 4/16 at 12:30 in 124 MHC.
