General Tips:

The key here is planning! Be sure to schedule time to look for jobs/internships, write your resume, do practice interviews, and get those clothes cleaned/ironed.

Career Services is a great resource for all CU students and if you don’t already have an account you should make one by clicking the link on the left for new users. They can help you in every on of the areas listed previously, and you can even schedule an appointment with a councilor to help you get started.

Additionally, we recommend using the free online tools LinkedIn and Glassdoor. LinkedIn is like Facebook for working professionals. When you sign up you can build a profile, attach a resume, and even provide links to any of your online work. Glassdoor is a website that allows you to view anonymous employee reviews of the companies that they work for. It allows you to see things like pros/cons of working for that company, average salary, and common interview questions.
