Summer 2014 Ireland Internship Program Review

22 Aug

This summer a group of UT Dallas students traveled to Dublin, Ireland to work in internships. The Career Center offered this 8-week internship program through a partnership with the Education Abroad office and Connect-123. Students from all over campus worked at a wide range of internship locations, including a hospital, a law office, and an electric bike company. This program allowed the students to get great professional experience related to their fields, all while experiencing Irish culture. Plus, they earned academic credit for the internships through internship courses at UT Dallas!

Networking Opportunities in the Community

22 Jul

Networking is a key part of job searching. It’s also a really hard part of job searching! It can be awkward, and it is often difficult to find a place to start. One option is to seek out community groups that offer networking events for free. Religious organizations, professional groups, and social organizations can all offer this type of resource.

For instance, Jewish Family Services (a United Way organization) offers a variety of career resources for free. All services are open to all!
