Tips for a Successful Search

Landing a job on campus is like any other job search - before you apply online, you need to prepare. Once you’ve started to apply, it pays to be persistent with your search as departments post jobs throughout the school year.

  1. Prepare a resume and cover letter. The Career Center offers resume and cover letter guides on their website. Visit a Peer Career Advisor for resume review. ​​​Kellstadt Graduate School of Business students can engage with the Kellstadt Career Management Center. The CMC provides both career coaching and resources to support your campus-based job search​.
  2. Login to the Campus Job Board. First–time users will be prompted to create a profile.
  3. Upload your completed resume in the Campus Job Board.
  4. Search and apply for jobs. Review listings daily and respond quickly to positions that you are interested in!
  5. Prepare for your interview—schedule a practice interview.
  6. Follow up with the jobs for which you’ve applied.
  7. Send thank you e–mails to staff with whom you’ve interviewed.
  8. Having difficulty? Contact us for help.
