Jobs & Internships

Finding a job or an internship takes considerable research, preparation, and networking.  Start early, don't be discouraged by setbacks, and utilize all of your connections including personal, professional, and online contacts.   Make sure your CV is perfect, your interview skills are practiced and genuine, and that you are able to explain your major/degree to someone not familiar with GUQ.
