Securing an internship or job for the summer is something many students aim to do. If one hasn’t, no need to worry, there are still plenty of opportunities to connect with employers and snag the perfect internship or job to help you gain experience this summer.

Students that need internships or jobs over the summer should first start searching on SNHU Recruit. This database serves as a way to search for jobs and internships around the area. There are hundreds of employers looking for students to not only hire this summer, but for full-time positions for seniors who are graduating from SNHU.

Those who participated in the elevator pitch competition last week have met employers from different companies around the area. Students should follow up and reach out to these employers to see if they have internship or job opportunities available. Even if there are no opportunities available, networking is always beneficial. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know, that can help you find opportunities.

Having an up-to-date resume is the first step to getting interviews for internships this summer. Students should make an appointment at The Career & Professional Development Center so they can have a counselor review their resume to make sure that it will catch the attention of employers and give them the best shot of receiving the internship or job of their dreams.

The deadline to apply for credit for summer internships is May 18. This is not far away, so students should apply to as many internships and jobs as possible.

Students should contact The Career & Professional Development Center at 603-645-9793 or stop by the office in the Gustafson Center to make an appointment if they need help with LinkedIn, SNHU Recruit or to have a resume review or mock interview.
