[Internship/Job Info For #UMichStudents] University Career Alumni Network (UCAN) • One-to-One Career Advising

UCAN Is Free To Use And Can Help You Talk To Professionals In Your Field Or Industry Of Interest

Your approach to finding your internship or job can range from being super selective to casting a wide net.

But those approaches might not have as big of an impact on your overall success as you think they would.

Instead, think about how your approach might change if you found out that 85% of jobs were filled through networking.

2019 Fall Job & Internship Fair

Whether it's joy or relief, or a mixture of both, landing your internship or first job out of college is usually a good feeling.

But in order to land one, you have to prioritize your job search.

Because past data has shown that it can take three-to-six months to go from starting your search ▸ to applying ▸ to getting interview offers ▸ to getting internship/job offers ▸ to weighing your options ▸ to accepting your offer (i.e., start date, location, compensation, benefits, etc).

[Internship/Job Info For #UMichStudents] 2019 Law Day • Preparing For The Job & Internship Fair

2019 Law Day

If you're thinking about law school then you probably already know which programs you're interested in.

However even if that is the case, Law Day is still nice in terms of meeting with reps from those programs you're interested in.

You can get tips from them on things like your personal statement, reference letters, financial aid, and application.

Meeting them can also help them remember who you are when they're reviewing admission applications.

3rd Annual 'Meet the Interns' Event Happening This Week (Includes Free Food)

When it comes to internships and jobs, your fellow U-M students are great resources.

But it's not always easy to find other students who have worked at places you might want to work at — and who are available to share their advice and experience with you.

That’s why we host ‘Meet the Interns’ each year. This year's event is co-sponsored by Citi, DTE Energy, Goldman Sachs, ZS Associates, and BP.
