Develop Your Search Strategy

You are here

The first step to developing a successful career search strategy is to understand your own goals and skills.  To help you identify these, consider taking a career assessment or personality test.

Once you have a firm understanding of your skills and the direction you’d like to go, you can begin to identify some potential employers whose culture aligns with your ideals by researching companies

  • attend career fairs and information sessions
  • land the interview
  • don't forget to follow-up

Remember, the career development journey is a process -- it's okay to realize that the current path is not right for you.  You always have time to shift your focus and realign your strategy.

You might find it helpful to explore what other IST students have been doing to fulfill their internship requirement through our Internship Registration Database.  Please note: this information is reported by students and is not edited.  You can filter the database by industry, state, company, internship year, and major.
