Job Search Resources

Networking

The skill of networking--whether meeting someone to learn more about their work or maintaining an engaging conversation with a recruiter--is essential to both landing a job and moving ahead in an organization. 

Don't forget to make a LinkedIn Profile, and take a look at their recommendations!

Networking with Recruiters

One of the standard first steps toward getting an interview or job on campus is to participate in a career fair. The Career Center and the Psychology Department offer yearly career and research connection fairs where you will meet representatives from companies and research labs looking to hire students.
