Find a Job and Internship


The Handshake platform is designed to help you discover and connect to career opportunities. Use Handshake to search for jobs and internships, register for careers fairs and events, and research employers and industries.

Here are some of the things you can do:

  • Search for job and internship opportunities online
  • Message and connect with employers
  • Find local, in-state, and out-of-state career opportunities
  • Attend events and job fairs


Just like everything else in the job search process, the application is an important component. An employer will learn a lot about you from your application and how you complete it. Make sure you take the time to project a positive and professional image.

Use common sense when completing the application. By not following directions, you are telling a potential employer that you won’t follow them on the job either. A messy application shows that you don’t have respect for your work or for other people’s time; vague information and spelling errors prove that you can’t pay attention to details and follow through an entire project; and listing specific salary requirements tells them you are rigid and inflexible – all things most employers want to avoid.

About Micro-Internships

Similar to an internship, you can gain valuable experience honing your career skills, exploring your potential career industry, and networking. However, that is where the similarities end. One of the big differences is length. A project typically can range from 5-40 hours of work – easier to weave into your life than a semester-long internship. All micro-internships are professional paid projects and nearly all internship projects are conducted remotely.

Parker Dewey is a partner platform that connects students and employers on paid micro-internship projects of 5-40 hours in scope. These experiences help students to get a foot in the door and receive feedback on their professional skills and preparation. These micro-internships are a great way for companies to get short term help with projects, as well as being a new way for employers to vet talent.

Internships are temporary employment positions for students in their related field of study. Any position for which students are hired and gain skills that correspond with their classroom learning can be considered an internship. Internships may be paid or unpaid and generally consist of an exchange of services for experience between the student and an organization.
