The time of year is upon us when students are looking for a summer job or internship. This can undoubtedly be a difficult task when trying to balance the search with your studies,
extracurricular activities and personal life. To make your job or internship search easier, here are some resources that could help.
There are various job boards available to the public for no cost. Each job board may cater to a
different audience. Here are three different job boards that may be useful in your job or
Indeed is a popular job board that does not cater to a specific audience. Its goal is to simply
display available jobs in your desired area. Indeed prefers that you create a profile to have the
most efficient experience. This allows you to save jobs that you are interested in, and you can
save your resume to your profile to make applying to jobs quick and simple.
LinkedIn is another popular job board. LinkedIn is also a social networking platform because it
gives users the ability to connect with other users and make or share posts. The connections and the posts you make should be related to your professional life. Including your LinkedIn URL on your resume is common so potential employers can see any posts or connections you have made.
Handshake is a job board that caters to college students. When creating a profile and after
entering your school, Handshake will automatically know things relating to your college career such as your major and GPA. On Handshake, interested recruiters can private message you, letting you know of potential opportunities or inviting you to an interview.
If you prefer to supplement these platforms with an in-person experience, IU South Bend will
host its annual career fair on March 29 and 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Student Activities
Center. Admission to the career fair is free and it is open to students, alumni and community
members. This is a great opportunity on campus that will get you one step closer to landing a job or internship.
Students may pre-register for the career fair on IUSBCareers, Career Services’ own job board. If
you have any questions regarding the career fair, you can contact the Career Services Office at
