Get Experience While you are in school

Be sure to talk to your career advisor early so that you know how to make this experience work for you long-term. Your career advisor can help you identify what information you need to put on your resume, can help you ask for a reference letter before the experience ends, and can provide you with tips on how to be a top performer during your experience.

  • Job shadow someone who is in the job you want
  • Participate in a mentoring program
  • Complete an internship (or two) – find opportunities on HireABlazer
  • Engage in research on campus
  • Volunteer both on and off campus
