SEARCH RESOURCES

We’ve collected several job search sites into one place so that you can easily find relevant resources for your internship search. In addition to these resources, there are many more available right at your googling fingertips!

Feel free to set up an appointment with a career counselor (315.443.3616 or via OrangeLink) if you have questions about any of these sites, or if you’d like to discuss your job search strategy.

(Click on a topic below for a sampling of resources.)

    • Follow official company accounts on Twitter to be the first to find out about new jobs and internships. If you’re targeting a specific location or industry, consider following job aggregator accounts as well.
  3. ALUMNI

    One of the most valuable aspects of your Syracuse University education is the vast network of alumni who are incredibly passionate about SU and are anxious to help you while you’re still in school and long after graduation.

    SUccess in the City  Networking events take place in nine different cities across the U.S. every summer. Our established alumni in those cities welcome new graduates (and students too) and offer career advice.

    SU alumni club. Join where you live. Chances are good that there’s an SU alumni club within driving distance. Club events offer great networking opportunities. Gather to watch an SU game and you may leave with a new job prospect!

    ’CuseConnect. A LinkedIn group for alumni who love SU as much as you do. Join the group and take part in relevant career discussions, message fellow members directly (but never ask for a job outright!), and keep an eye on the “Jobs” tab for opportunities that other members want you to know about.

    #HireOrange. When our alumni want to hire an SU student or fellow grad, we’ll use #HireOrange on Twitter! Keep an eye on that hashtag for opportunities within the Orange family. View career profiles on our YouTube channel, SU Career Services, for dozens of videos featuring our alumni and other resources. Perhaps you’ll discover a career path you never knew existed!

    @WorkingOrange.  Follow @WorkingOrange on Twitter. It's job shadowing, Twitter style! The account features alumni guest tweeters who share their days with you. You can learn all about new and interesting career paths. Be sure to tweet lots of questions their way!
