Job Searching Resources

At ACES, we want to help all students learn not only what job resources are available but also how to use these resources when you need them.

  • The video below will show you how to use Handshake to search for on-campus employment. Although the video is specific to on-campus employment, you can use the same steps and modify your search to find off-campus employment as well.

  • Below the video, you will find an accordion menu of all the job searching resources ACES uses when helping students find employment; simply click on a category that interests you and read through the outlined resources.

  • Finally, at the bottom of the page, is a program offered by the Alumni Association to connect students with alumni for networking opportunities.
