Technology and Your Job Search Right Now

The start of a semester is always a busy and exciting time. One day it seems like there are but a handful of students walking the grounds, and then the next day, the equivalent of an entire town is up and running. Just this past week, I witnessed what looked like thousands of students lining Fairfield Way for the Involvement Fair.

With all this new energy and excitement on campus that comes with the start of the academic year, it is important to take a bit of time to talk about how to locate jobs and internships that you want! The Center for Career Development is here for you with a large number of excellent resources.

Foremost of those resources is the HuskyCareerLink system. HuskyCareerLink is your UConn exclusive database that features job and internship postings from employers who want to connect with current UConn students and alumni too. Within the system you can locate full-time, part-time, and internship opportunities. If you want to find opportunities that are geared for you, this is the place! You already have access to this powerful resource that can connect you with 1000’s of opportunities and employers, all you need to do is follow the link on our website and use your netID and password to get in.

In addition, you can also access GoingGlobal, a premiere resource for locating opportunities abroad!

The Center for Career Development works to provide the best available technologies to our students and alumni. Stop in and see one of our career consultants for more information and help customizing your personal job search today!
