Job & Internship Search Skills Practice Topics

Starting a job or internship search begins with some definition of what you're actually looking for.

In this session, we'll get you started with that process and walk you through some of the "killer questions" that help you to clarify what you're looking for. While you may not achieve this in one hour, the end goal is a single sentence you can use in most settings to define the type of opportunity you're aiming for.

You'll use the combination of a professional objective, core message, and target list as the foundation for your successful search.
