Getting Internship & Work Experience

Employers consistently rank "on-the-job experience" as a top qualification that new college graduates should possess. Listed below are some resources for Clarion University students interested in getting experience:

  • Part-Time Jobs - The Center posts on and off campus job opportunities that are brought to our attention by university departments and local businesses.  Log in to your account at Clarion Career Connections to see current postings.

  • Internships - Access the Internship Strategies Checklist; information pertaining to paid, unpaid, and for academic credit internships, as well as links to internship providers.

  • Recognized Student Organizations - Participating in student organizations is a great way to link your personal involvement on campus with your professional goals. Serving on a committee, planning an event, or holding a leadership position are only a few of the kinds of experiences you can add to your resume as clear evidence of skills that employers require.

  • Community Service/Volunteerism - Learn what steps you need to take to 1) register your interest in volunteering; 2) access a list of agencies, civic groups, service organizations, businesses, and special programs that currently seek individual and group volunteers; and 3) report your service hours.
