Advice from Our Recruiters

Go in with an open mind. Just because you may not recognize a company does not mean they aren’t worth chatting with.
Talk about your interests and your goals rather than reciting your resume – it makes the conversation more natural and helps you learn about whether or not your interests align with that employer.

My best advice is to think about the "why" and "what." Why do you want this role? Why do you want this company? What makes you the perfect person for this position?
Recruiter, Intern Programs
A successful job search means going with your gut – you want to be excited to go to work every day. Company culture and coworkers are a huge part of your work-life happiness.
TA Specialist, Intern Programs
Your confidence is one of the first things people notice in a first impression. Recruiters want to get to know you, so be confident – and if you do pre-research on the company, it will show.

The best piece of advice I have for the job search is to keep all your options open. When graduating college, you don’t want to narrow down your job search to just one open position as things may not change in your favor.
