Internships Job Search On-Campus Recruiting

Job Search

A common question students ask is when to begin their job search. Unfortunately, there isn’t one answer to this question. Everyone’s search is different, as is every employer. Timelines vary widely even within the same industry. Regardless, it’s important to plan ahead to assure you don’t miss out on opportunities. There are employers who will be hiring in advance, though the majority hire only as needed, which can be very unpredictable. Review the information below on both categories for more information.

It is also important to designate sufficient time for your job search. It is a good idea to think about your job search as a class, without an exam. If you typically designate 4-5 hours a week to prepare for a class that is what you should designate for your job search.

Advanced Hiring

There are employers who are able to anticipate their entry-level hiring needs months in advance. These companies are in the minority, and are by no means representative of the range of entry-level opportunities that will be available to graduating seniors.

Employers who participate in the On-Campus Recruiting program fall into the advanced hiring category. Generally speaking, the majority of employers who come to campus in the fall semester are seeking candidates for full-time opportunities (except for competitive summer internships in finance). Others will come to campus early in the spring semester as well to hire entry-level candidates and for internships.

In addition to On-Campus Recruiting, there are employers and organizations that have established 1-2 year opportunities or programs. In the non-profit sector these are sometimes referred to as fellowships, or may also be listed as internships. Some well-known examples of fixed-term programs in the non-profit sector are Teach for America, AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps. Other sectors may have established fixed-term programs, sometimes referred to as leadership development programs or rotational programs.

The application deadlines vary depending on the opportunity; some have one deadline per year, typically late fall or early spring, while larger programs may have multiple deadlines throughout the year.

As Needed Hiring

The majority of employers across all sectors – for-profit, non-profit, and government – fall into this category. Most employers hire when someone leaves or when the company or organization is growing. When positions become available, employers often want to fill the opening quickly; if a position becomes available in February, most employers will not be able to hold it open until June when a graduating student is available to begin working. But that doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t start your job search early.

Building relationships through networking takes time, and your goal should be to develop a well-established and far reaching network before positions become available to assure you learn about opportunities. Even if you’re primarily targeting industries or employers who don’t hire in advance, you should be working on your job search throughout your senior year. Growing your network and gaining industry knowledge over the course of the year will be more manageable and more productive.

Step #1: Preparation

Attend senior meetings and workshops by the Career Center
Get your resume and cover letters reviewed, and approved (Drop In Hours & Appointments)
Practice your interviewing technique with Career Center staff (mock interviews)
Clean up all voice messages, online profiles, and social networking sites
Prepare your “elevator speech” (30-second pitch) for brief encounters with employers/contacts
Create a profile on LinkedIn.com (for tips, click here), and join group, “Colby Alumni & Friends”
Create an account on the online alumni directory, Colby Alumni Community (formally known as “CAN”)
Get at least one interview suit

Step #2: Self-Assessment & Research

  • Determine the job you want
    • If unsure, do some self-assessment (likes & dislikes, values & skill sets)
    • If have some idea, but need clarification:
      • Investigate various job titles and descriptions
      • Do informational interviews, and use Inside Jobs
  • Utilize What Can I Do With This Major?
  • Determine where you want to live
  • Research industries and organizations to determine best fit by reviewing organizational web pages and utilizing online resources like Vault (access via your home page in Colby CareerLink under “Shortcuts”) and WetFeet
  • Research best practices for job search methods; one resource includes Job Search Guide for Gen Y

Strategy #1:  It’s Not Who You Know, but Who You Get to Know (Networking)

Networking is nearly always cited as being the most effective job search approach for Liberal Arts graduates. Networking entails contacting everyone you know and asking for advice, information, and job leads, as well as developing new relationships to increase your knowledge base and to explore possibilities.

Not sure how to approach people you don’t know? Draft an e-mail or letter to one of your potential contacts and bring it by the Career Center during Drop-Ins or make an appointment with an advisor for help proofreading your correspondence, as well as to discuss strategy.

  • Make a list of contacts (people you know and people you want to know)
  • Tell your advisor, faculty, friends, family, etc. that you’re looking for a job
  • Initiate contact to set up informational interviews with people in career fields of interest
  • Connect with Colby alumni in your field or in organizations of interest using the online alumni directory, Colby Alumni Community
  • Utilize LinkedIn; join the “Colby Alumni & Friends” group
  • Join Professional Associations (see What Can I Do With This Major?)
  • When you get tips, assistance, etc., follow-up with a thank you e-mail or letter

Strategy #2:  Colby-Specific Initiatives

The Career Center organizes multiple opportunities throughout the year for students to interview with employers either at Colby or off-campus at Bates and Bowdoin. Check the calendar in Colby CareerLink frequently for announcements and resume deadlines.

Colby CareerLink

Colby’s proprietary database showing announcements and on-campus recruiting deadlines. The system also lists entry- and mid-level job postings as well as internship opportunities. From Colby CareerLink, you may also access LACN (see below) and NACElink external jobs and internship listings.

Liberal Arts Career NetWORK (LACN)

Colby has partnered with 30+ other highly-selective liberal arts colleges to share entry-level job postings as well as internship postings.

Strategy #3:  Find Job Listings (Applying for Known Openings)

Many, but not all, fields utilize the Web to post openings they seek to fill. Your background research will tell you if this is true for your field or not. Please keep in mind that there are not only numerous general web-site/online bulletin boards, but also many industry-specific sites as well as Colby-specific resources like Colby CareerLink. Some examples are below:

The list can be accessed by clicking here, or by going to the Center’s web site under “Students” and then “Job Search”. Another good resource includes the exploration tool, What Can I Do With This Major? Click on “Links” under your major or area of interest to see related Professional Associations and job listings.

Strategy #4:  Identify Possible Employers (Prospecting)

Another successful job search strategy is to identify potential employers in industries of interest using the tools below. Once you find organizations that are engaged in the type of work you would like to be doing, you can visit their web sites to find openings and use networking resources to learn about potential job opportunities. Another strategy is to approach the employers directly through a direct mail campaign, where you mail/email a well-written resume accompanied by a cover letter, which clearly and directly states your qualifications.

Vault (Vault (access via your home page in Colby CareerLink under “Shortcuts”)
