PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & INTERNSHIP PARTNERSHIPS

UpTurnships 
UpTurnships is a nonprofit that prepares college students for success through training, coaching and paid internships during college. We are a group of experienced business executives who became concerned about the rising cost of college tuition, a reduction in training and paid internships, and a generation who is suffering the consequences. We believe one solution is to create more opportunities for college students to get the skills, paid work experience and confidence they need during college so they are prepared for the new business reality at graduation.

INROADS
Internships lay the foundation for your future career. As an INROADS intern, you’re connected with some of the world’s leading industry innovators for paid – yes, paid– internships. You’ll be challenged academically and professionally, and we’ll give you the tools to rise to the occasion. As an INROADS intern, you’ll have access to our dedicated team of trainers, mentors, and recruiters, all of whom are here to connect you with your greatest goals for success. 82% of our graduating college seniors accept a job with their sponsoring company, and they’re already moving up the pay scale when they sign that first offer.

3C Fellows 
The Central Corridor College Fellowship (C3F) was established by the Central Corridor Anchor Partnership to connect college students who are pursuing studies in health care, health services, business, accounting, finance and information technology, with local employers. C3F assists students in gaining entry-level employment at participating health care and business institutions. Fellows meet the workforce needs of employers and gain meaningful work experiences prior to graduation. The C3 Fellows program also coordinates on campus events, speakers, and industry tours to connect fellows, mentors, and employers.

JOB SEARCH TIPS AND ADVICE

PARTICIPATE IN CAMPUS PROGRAMS AND EVENTS

There are a variety of job fairs, workshops, and other events that employers participate in to directly connect with students. Participating in these events will get you face-to-face with a number of employers. Be sure to prepare yourself for any networking event by researching the employers, knowing what you have to offer them, having your resume available, and dressing professionally. Review our upcoming events in Handshake.

DEVELOP A TARGET LIST OF EMPLOYERS

To find information on employers, look through employer directories such as the Book of Lists in the Strommen Center or the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits online. LinkedIn is another great resource for researching companies.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

  • Ask a career counselor to critique your resume, review your situation, and help you brainstorm new strategies.
  • Try using a staffing agency. Temporary jobs will pay you money, help you learn more about the world of work, and may even help you meet a prospective employer.
  • Consider taking any job in an organization or field which interests you, even if it is not at the level for which you are prepared. Once you get inside an organization, you may be able to move up.
  • If you are unable to find the job you want in the area you live, think about moving. Economic conditions are not the same all over the country. Research to find what areas have plentiful jobs in your field.
  • Volunteer your time to gain experience. Volunteers who do well may receive consideration when hiring occurs.
  • Arrange informational interviews with employers and others in the fields which interest you. This will help make you a more informed candidate and you may learn about potential employers.
