Job Search Basics
While a Cornell student-employment job may not be directly aligned with your ultimate career goals, you should still take the job preparation and interview process seriously. It can mean landing a job that you really need, while also giving you a leg up post-graduation when careful job preparation and interviewing is essential.
Cornell’s Career Services Office offers numerous resources to get you prepared, including, but not limited to:
- Developing a professional looking resume;
- Writing cover letters that sell your skills; and
- Knowing what to expect in a job interview.
