Getting Set for Summer in the Spring
Spring Semester is a time when a lot of people start setting up summer internships, research positions, or jobs. The Career center web site and Callisto Job Postings are great resources that can help you with finding jobs and internships as well as developing skills like resume building. You can sign up for the CareerMail mailing list for the receive emails about employer events, workshops and other opportunities you might not have thought to look for! If you are graduating and taking some time off before starting graduate school, medical school or other professional education you might also be interested in using the Letter Service through the career center. Your letters can be kept confidential and sent out when you need them.
Summer research can also be a great way to gain experience and participate in research without having school to worry about at the same time. SPUR is an excellent research opportunity that is open only to CNR students. Students can initiate projects or they can apply to join a faculty initiated project the web site: http://www.cnr.berkeley.edu/site/spur_students.php has all the details and deadlines for Spring 2010 and Summer 2010.
There are also some graduating PALs that would be happy to discuss how they started getting ready for the job market or graduate/ medical school, so feel free come by our office hours, we welcome your questions :D !
