TIPS FOR finding an Internship/Job Both on and Off campus
Carefully review the internship/job requirements. Only apply if you are interested in the position, meet the minimum requirements and can work the hours listed.
Make sure your resume is up to date and accurate. The Career Services Center has staff available to help you with your resume and interviewing skills. There is also a sample document on the www.scsucareers.com website for you to work with.
Don't be afraid to call a few days after submitting your application to check the status
Other tips for students
A full time student (taking 12 credits or more) should only work an average of 15-20 hours per week maximum to ensure enough time is spent on homework. Student Employment Research indicates that anything more than 15 hours per week for a full-time student adversely affects their academics, retention, and school satisfaction. A part time student (less then 12 credits) should only work an average of 30 hours per week maximum to allow for enough time to complete homework assignments.
