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:
- On-campus Recruiting: Highlights internships where employers are coming to conduct interviews
- Jobs and Internships: This section features summer jobs that are being marketed by employers who are not planning to come to campus. In previous spring semesters, we have had separate job posting service outside of CCNet, for employers seeking interns from ILR only. Often, these employers are ILR alumni. To better serve our students and other constituents, we have folded the ILR Job Posting Service into the existing CCNet program.
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.
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.
