ORG201 Job & Internship Search Strategies (1 credit)

Course Description

In this course you will learn and practice strategies for searching for a job, internship or practicum. You should only take this course if you are actually ready to start looking for a job, internship or practicum. This is a “learn by doing” course, so in much of the course you will be calling, emailing and applying for jobs, internships or practicum placements. This course will train you in best practices to maximize your chances of finding a placement. The faculty in this course will serve as a coach to guide and advise you through your process.

One of the main purposes of this course is to help you find an internship or practicum, so you can take our ORG350/ADC420/ORG615 Internship/Practicum Course (which requires that the student be in a job, internship or practicum placement with appropriate supervision).
