Internships and Co-ops 
Internships and co-ops allow you to work in a specific field and gain experience. Participating in one or more is one of the best ways to prepare for your career.  

A resume is a document that shows potential employers your education, experience, and qualifications clearly, concisely, and compellingly.  

Cover Letters 
A cover letter is a “sales pitch” that shows potential employers why your skills and experience are the best fit for their needs.  

Interviewing lets you connect with a potential employer and show why you’d be perfect for the job. 

80% of company hires involve a shared contact in their professional network.  Whether through a pre-planned meeting or an impromptu conversation at a conference, career fair, information session, or anywhere else, networking will likely help you find your first job and be crucial as you advance in your career.
