Helping you Connect

The Cooper Center is here to help connect you with career, internship, and part-time work opportunities.

Employers: Thanks for your interest in connecting with our students and alumni. The best method to make job and internship opportunities available to our students is by posting on Handshake.  Please also view the “For Employers” tab below for additional information and options for connecting with our students.

Students and Alumni:

Additional Places to Perform Job Searches

  • The best place to start your job search is to ask your professors for recommendations for the best sites in your particular field, or by talking to others currently working in the field. You may also talk to someone in our office about additional sources connected to your specific field of interest.
  • Keep in mind that some job opportunities are not posted publicly and can only be discovered through networking and asking!
  • There is also an interactive job search function within PathwayU, one of the assessments used in the Cooper Center. Contact us for access and navigation instructions.
