Finding a Job

Pursuing internships, co-ops, field placements, practicums and career opportunities is an ongoing process. Having these types of experiences makes graduates more marketable. They also help students to determine what they like, and don’t like, before they pursue them as full-time career opportunities.

Handshake is the primary source that recruiters use to post internships, co-ops and career opportunities for college students. Therefore, it is important for you to set up a Handshake account and upload your approved CDS resume.
