Job and Internship Search Sites

submitted by lgeorge@augsburg.edu

Be active and flexible in their job and internship search for this summer. Positions are available but they might not be your first choice.
Here are a few platforms you might want to check out.

Jobs and Internships:

CareerShift: Augsburg.Careershift.com – Powerful search engine that will find any position posted in the last 30 days. It is good for finding a job or internship.
Internships.com (https://www.internships.com/) – As the url says, good for finding internships.

Katapult Network (https://katapultnetwork.com/)- They help new grads find their first job.
SciTechSperience (https://scitechmn.org/) – they have an internship program and also have a STEM job board.

General Experience:

If you can’t find a job or internship you can still build your network, skills, and resume building experiences. Check out these two sites:

Meetup.com (https://www.meetup.com/MN-diyBio/): There are a number of great meetups around the cities. This link is to one that biotech innovators are involved with.

Volunteer (https://www.catchafire.org/): There are good virtual volunteer opportunities that will help you build your network and skill sets.

These and more are listed on Strommen’s Community Moodle site under Job and Internship Search.
