In part one of this Guide to Finding Internships, the focus was primarily on preparing for the search and learning about the Career Development Center’s job management system, EMPLOYOLA.  That’s just one of many resources we offer through our website that supports your internship search.  Here are a few others to consider:

CAREER INSIDER

Go to the Career Development Center’s webpage at http://studentaffairs.loyno.edu/careers and click on CareerInsider.  Use this wonderful e-library to download The Vault Guide to Top Internships, an e-book listing information on the most popular and interesting internships in the U.S.A. with inside scoop, deadlines, and applications tips. You can also research more than 50 career paths, 40 industries, and 2500 employers. If you want a nationally prestigious internship, this should be your bible.

GOING GLOBAL

This resource lists valuable information on more than 45 American and Canadian cities and 35 countries, including job and internship information and information on top employers, networking groups, visas, cost of living, and job seeking tips.

INTERNET JOB SITES

In the FIND JOBS AND INTERNSHIPS section of our website is a page that lists numerous internship job boards http://studentaffairs.loyno.edu/careers/students/internship-postings-and-websites.  Some of our favorites are:

www.indeed.com

www.idealist.org

www.campuscareercenter.com

A reminder about the power of EMPLOYOLA, we send internship and job alerts through Twitter and Facebook.  Follow us @EMPLOYola_Surge and like us at Facebook.com/EMPLOYOLA.

Since only about eight percent of jobs are found through job boards, the next blog in this series will focus on other tactics you can use to find your internship.  Check back next week to learn more.
