Search for a Job/Internship

This page provides, among other things, helpful information on finding internships in specific career paths, a housing resource, and a job/internship tracking template! These resources are all found under our “Career Resources” tab. For more help finding more opportunities, schedule an appointment with a CPD career coach.

The CPD recommends the following approach to finding jobs and internships. As a candidate, structure your search to:

  • Research and identify industries that match your goals and interests
  • Identify individual companies and organizations whose reputations and expertise appeal to you
  • Network with alumni and personal contacts working in the field or the specific company you’re interested in

Note that searching current openings is only part of the process. Candidates who take a holistic approach that incorporates industry and company-level searches, in combination with networking, tend to be more successful than those who rely on job and internship postings alone. To maximize your search, book an appointment with a career coach.

Looking to explore your interests and test out different roles in an organization? Many organizations offer entry-level training programs as a pipeline to develop leadership talent. Most of these programs are 1-2 years long and offer short-term “rotations” inside different departments and divisions during the training period. Learn more about rotation and leadership training programs in this guide.
