Prepare for Your Job or Internship Search


1. Research
Find out what types of jobs are in your field of interest. If you are not sure what you want to do, assessments and workshops can help you explore how your interests match up with career choices.

In addition to researching online, attend Career Center Networking Events to learn more about what people are doing in different fields.
2. Write a resume and cover letter
Your resume and cover letter are your personal marketing tools; they showcase your skills and experiences to employers. The goal, of course, is to make a positive impression and entice employers to contact you for an interview. Make sure your resume shines. Peer Career Advisors offer resume help and critiques on a walk-in basis.
3. Practice your interviewing skills
How you communicate, on paper and in person, can affect an employer’s opinion of you. Take control of your interview success. Practice your interviewing technique with online tools or get tips during a one-on-one interview with an alumni mentor.
4. Build your network and make connections
Learn about the fields you’re interested in directly from people who are working in them. Get “inside information” on industry trends, organizational culture, and hiring outlook. Connect with alumni through the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) Program. Learn more at http://ask.depaul.edu.
