Applying for an internship? Our list of online resources and application guides can help!
As always, when applying for a position online, do not give out personal information (beyond your basic contact information) and don't agree to anything that makes you uncomfortable. If offered an interview, make sure that it takes place at the business's office or at a public place (like Starbucks). If you are worried about the authenticity of any job posting, stop, and get in touch with the Career Center so that they can help you validate it.
