Summer Options

Gaining valuable experience over the summer can provide you with a competitive edge when searching for a full time job or admission into graduate programs. It is also a great way to determine what career path to pursue.

Possible ways to find opportunities include:

Web Search

Explore positions that may be posted on national job boards, and directly on web sites of organizations that interest you.


Connect with potential employers in your hometown or preferred areas, and inquiring about potential summer openings.

Summer Survey

Use this extensive database of previous summer positions to find possible leads. Since these employers have recent experience with one or more ILR students, they may respond positively to a letter or phone call from a current student.

Additional resources are available to assist you in maximizing your search. Alumni directories, listing ILR alumni in your geographical region, may also lead to summer job contacts.
