For sophomore and junior students, Career Services can be an important resource. Some students think only seniors need to contact Career Services, but actually the sooner students contact the office the better. If you don't already have a resume you can get some help from a Career Counselor. Consider setting up an informational interview, job shadowing experience, or receive assistance in finding an internship. This is the time to make stronger connections to your prospective career field and gain experience in this area. Below is a list of ideal opportunities for sophomore and junior students that are offered through the Career Center.
