The Job & Internship Search

For many, the job or internship search process seems to merely involve searching and applying. However, this is not the case. There are actually several important steps to take before forwarding a resume or cover letter. Knowing what these steps are and how to properly execute them will increase your chances of obtaining the interview.

The Center for Career Education and Advising will help you through the preparation and search process to make sure you are ready before reaching out to employers.

Contact the CCEA at or 774.354.0448 to make an appointment. We will make sure you get the assistance you need.
