How to find a job or internship

Our career advisors will talk to you employment and internship options, and you'll learn about job functions and hiring cycles. You need to tackle different aspects of this process — from self-assessment and career exploration, to branding yourself and informational interviews, to résumé and cover letter writing, to getting an internship and negotiating a job offer.
