There are several ways to go about searching for these openings. One way is going through your school’s job postings. Several business and corporations will release openings to colleges in which they have established relationships with. Be sure you ask your professors if you are unsure of how to find these openings.

Another great way to search for openings is through online job searching sites. LinkedIn has grown astronomically since its induction, and many businesses throughout the country use it. If you are planning on looking for a job or internship outside of your college’s area, than you will want to use sites like this. Others include Monster or Indeed.

Applying During Summer

At this point, you may have missed the opportunity to apply to most universities and four-year schools. However, many community colleges offer later admission for individuals interested in furthering their education. If you find yourself wanting to pursue a college degree, then you will want to contact the college’s office of admissions. These numbers can be found online on each individual college website.
