Internships and Job Opportunities

Interested in receiving feedback from an employer regarding your resume?
Walk in or register below for the Employer-in-Residence Program 
University Career Center & The President's Promise (3100 Hornbake Library, South Wing)
This program allows employers to serve as "career advisors" to students seeking help. Employers participate in our daily rotation by providing 1-on-1 career advice to students/alumni on issues ranging from resume assistance to answering the question "how do I break into your field?". Come learn about ways you can improve your skills and get feedback from industry professionals about what they look for in a candidate.

Here's a look at the Employers scheduled for the next two weeks:

April 10, 11:00AM - 04:00PM - Meet with City Year, Washington
April 10, 12:30PM - 04:00PM- Meet with National Security Agency (NSA)
April 12, 11:00AM - 04:00PM- Meet with Dante Consulting
April 17, 10:00AM - 03:30PM- Meet with Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Online registration in advance is the best way to be sure you are seen at your preferred time (you can choose a 30-minute slot based on availability). However, we will take same-day walk-ins on a first-come, first served basis to fill any empty slots. There is no guarantee that you will be able to walk in and be seen at that time.
