  1. Claim your Handshake profile, meet with Career Services to have your resume and other career documents reviewed, and use them to complete your Handshake profile.
  2. Schedule a practice interview with Career Services and continue to interview as much as possible. Even if you are not really interested in a job if you are offered an interview take it. And remember to ask for feedback. Practice makes perfect!
  3. Attend in-person or virtual career fairs and network, network, network!
  4. Seek out any kind of volunteer opportunity or job for this summer that will help you continue to build soft skills (communication, critical thinking, leadership, team building, etc.).
