Internship Search

  • Covintern gets you connected with remote internships at top startups and companies. The benefit: remote internships mean you could be in ANY location and still be in consideration.
  • Follow @Hiring2020 on Twitter for an update on Summer 2020 internships available.
  • Check out the Jumpstart forum to determine which companies are hiring interns.
  • This GitHub forum will give you intel on various organizations' internship status and help you find companies that are moving to remote options.
  • Looking for available internships in the US and open to the idea of being abroad once things get back to normal? CollegeFam has boards for US internships and International internships.

 

Job Search

Useful Digital Job Search Tips

Utilize the Chapman Network through LinkedIn:

Join a LinkedIn Group

The Groups that will likely be most valuable to you are those related to your industry, your job function and your (current or desired) geography. If you can find a combo group that hits both your industry and your geography (e.g., Portland Accounting and Finance Professionals), this is where you’re going to get the most value.

Once you are in a group:

  1. Engage in Discussions
    Benefit: You may meet valuable people in your area or industry and you can position yourself as someone who is passionate, knowledgeable and engaged in your field.

  2. Post Your Own Question or Share Content
    Benefit: Another great way to brand yourself as someone who knows her stuff and likes what she does. You can imagine that people who hate their chosen field or aren’t very good at what they do are not spending much time “talking shop” in industry-specific LinkedIn Groups, right?

  3. Check out Jobs Specific to Your Field Within the Group
    Benefit: You may find the perfect job that isn’t widely advertised elsewhere—and even have an in with the recruiter or hiring manager (remember all those discussions you’ve been starting?).

  4. Contact (and Connect with) Fellow Group Members
    Benefit: Other than the obvious benefit of knowing that person, by approaching through the shared group affiliation, you seem less like a cold call and more like “one of my people.”
