Earn Credit and Gain Important Job Search Skills

Is landing a job or internship on your list of goals for the next year? We have a course that can help you with that!

For many students, the process of searching for an internship or job can be a little daunting. This can be for a wide range of reasons. It might be that they are unsure about resume writing or interviewing. Maybe they searched before without success and want to know what they can do differently. Sometimes it is that they feel like they don’t have anyone in their network who can assist them. Or perhaps they don’t feel confident that they have the knowledge or skills to be successful. And, still, other times it is that they don’t know what they want (we also have a course for that — UMLO.1500 Career Exploration & Planning).

Do any of those reasons resonate with you? If yes, please consider enrolling in UMLO.2000 Job & Internship Search in the spring. Here’s why:

  • The course is designed to guide each student in developing a sound search strategy (Hint: this means more than just applying to jobs you can find on a single search platform such as Handshake, indeed, or LinkedIn).
  • Students will develop tailored application and self-marketing material.
  • Participants will practice communicating their skills and experiences — on paper and in-person.
  • The course will incorporate the Career Launch Method, a proactive approach to building social capital and tapping into the hidden job market.
  • Students who successfully complete the course will earn one-credit on a pass-no credit basis.

We’re offering multiple sections of the course and space is limited to 20 students per section. Please note that section 203 is designated for RHSA participants.

The course pre-reqs are: ENGL.1010 College Writing I, and ENGL.1020 College Writing II, or HONR.1100 First Year Seminar in Honors: Text in the City.
