Job Search

Looking for jobs specific to your major? Click here

The internet offers a massive amount of resources for finding jobs, so much that job seekers can end up “drowning” in the internet instead of “surfing” it. This step is to assist job seekers to search in “address specific” websites, rather than mega and meta lists that provide only a limited number of job listings in a particular field.

The sections in the job and career search process include networking, internships, job search by majors and field of study, Texas links, and workplace diversity.

 

Networking

The phrase “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” is wrong on both accounts. It is what you know; that is why you get a degree and internships. It’s also generally who you know who knows someone else (networking) that gets you an employment opportunity. Use this area to help build a worldwide network of future career contacts.
