Network with Catholic University Alumni on LinkedIn
We suggest that prior to beginning your online job or internship search, you work with a Career Coach or Academic Advisor to do a self-evaluation about your interests, skills, and values. An online job search can be much more efficient if you know what you're looking for in a position or a company.
All undergraduate students will utilize self-discovery tools in their BUS 199 and BUS 299 courses. If you have questions or need help, contact us for more info.
Before you begin searching for internships, we suggest you review our Intern Guide.
If you are ready to search for available internships or jobs, and know what you’re looking for, we suggest you begin on Catholic U’s tailored job board called Handshake. If you haven’t yet created a profile as a CUA student, be sure to log in here. Another great resource for your search is LinkedIn. If you have a company in mind without posted positions on Handshake, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will check our alumni database to see if there is someone we can connect you
