Job Search Basics

Get prepared

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 lots of resources to get you prepared, including:

  • Developing a professional looking resume
  • Writing cover letters that sell your skills
  • Knowing what to expect in a job interview
