Career advice and resources

Hi everyone,

I’m a freshmen in college and am starting to get antsy around internships and my future career. I’m currently a business major so I’m wondering if anyone has recommendations of services or apps that helps them with career advice and/or finding jobs?

There are a few resources I’d recommend:

For finding jobs, you can try the usual Linkedin, Indeed, Careerbuilder. There are a few up and coming services like Handshake and Polywork.

For career advice, I found Ohana (search Ohana: The Creator Marketplace on the App Store) to be great in matching you with successful people. Same for Lunchclub (search Lunchclub on any search engine).

As an undergraduate business major, you should have access to career clubs in your business school as well as access to career counseling / internship advising from your business school. These are the best resources (other business students / business school clubs / business school career center advisors).

I agree with Publisher. You should see what resources are available on your campus. Often, alumni offer internships that may not be available to students from other schools. My D’s school has a terrific career services department with career advising, grad school application guidance, and is a great resource for internships and networking. They also run an entire series of programming for sophomores to help them make connections.

Today, using indeed and linkedin seem to be the norm. My son goes to a big state school and I was surprised at the lack of on campus recruiting. But he had interviews with companies that would never recruit there.

You can also find business like opportunities at non-profits, at service businesses (think hotels, car dealerships) or worst case, ask a favorite professor if you can conduct research with and for them.

Many jobs today are filled through hirevue - meaning you take a video interview and frankly, it’s a #s game in many ways.

You didn’t say what type of business - there’s a big difference between supply chain and accounting, for example.

Good luck.
