Career Advice: If at all possible, apply in person. Dress professionally, be friendly, and be prepared with a hard copy of your resume to give to prospective employers. You can make a good impression just through a cover letter, resume, and application; but if the employer has a face and conversation in mind to connect those pieces of paper with, it might give you the extra edge that lands you a great job!
Major: Animal Science (pre-vet) '13
Interests: Soccer, snowboarding, track, traveling, trying different kinds of food
Career Advice: Try to do everything in advance. If you want to find a summer job or internship start looking in March. This way it'll give you time to do some research and just see what kind of options you have. If you want to go out of your state, you can make travel arrangements with enough time to discuss with your parents. Get it done early so you don't have to stress later!

Career Advice: Use the resources provided by the University! Many students think they can handle their career on their own. While for some this is possible, but it is simply not necessary. UVM provides many opportunities for students to receive guidance pertaining to finding a job or internship. There is no shame in asking for help, and its extremely easy to do. Just come into Career Services during the Drop-in hours and we'll get you started. All are welcome!
Major: Psychology, Animal Science
Interests: Hiking, animals, traveling, photography
Career Advice: The biggest advice I can give is, if you are intimidated by the job search process and don't know where to start, don't be afraid to ask someone for help. Go to as many workshops and job fairs that are available to you so you can see all the possibilities. I was once in that position but the programs that Career Services offers helped me to figure it all out. Keep an open mind to all of your options because there are so many out there, you never know what you will come across!
