Searching for a job or internship can be time-consuming and frustrating at times. There isn’t just one single way to search for a position. On the contrary, it is often beneficial to utilize multiple search strategies.  We hope you will contact us to talk more about your job search and/or graduate plans! 

DON’T LIMIT YOURSELF: TRY ALL JOB-HUNTING STRATEGIES!
The more strategies you use the better your chances of finding job leads and getting the job

NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK!
Everyone you know & meet is a potential contact for job leads.  Gather names, phone numbers and addresses.

PLAN RESEARCH STRATEGIES
Research companies and agencies.  Gather lists and send resumes along with a cover letter.  Highlight your skills and qualifications. Follow up by phone.  Informational interviews can help to get your foot in the door. 

IT’S BEST TO BE ASSERTIVE
Go after the position you want.  Research, call, and follow up.

REMAIN FOCUSED IN YOUR SEARCH
Set goals for yourself on a daily or weekly basis.  Stay positive.

BUILD SELF-CONFIDENCE
Keep yourself motivated and focus on your successes.

DEAL WITH STRESS
This can be a very stressful time.  Do something to deal with the stress.  This might include: exercise, listening to music, and deep breathing.

RESEARCH THE COMPANY
Look up the company on the Internet or in the library.  Request specific information from the company, such as: annual report, newsletter, or brochure.  There are many employment scams and we want you to learn to research well and be proactive in your search! 

KNOWING YOURSELF IS KEY
What are your accomplishments? What experience do you have?  What are your interests, goals, and values?  Practice interview questions and responses to become more familiar with interviewing.

Don't forget to view the list of job fairs and upcoming events on CCN as well!

Are you interested in being a mentor to Pitt-Greensburg students and/or pursuing mentorship opportunities to gain further insight after graduation?

A beneficial mentoring relationship fosters engagement between a professional and student/graduate becoming better acquainted with his/her field of study or situation. Mentoring provides a venue whereby the mentee can learn, ask questions, and gain valuable insight. Essential aspects to positive communications include: relay of knowledge, increased understanding, inspiration, and guidance. Mentor-mentee relationships, however, also may include a necessity to uphold certain ethical behavior to build rapport and maintain respectful communication. The goal of the Mentor-Mentee relationship is to foster a successful interaction.

When matched with identified mentors/mentees based upon your search criteria, we encourage you to research your match prior to engaging in any mentoring to confirm the match will further your professional goals and objective. By engaging in the mentor/mentee relationship, you agree to comply with the guidelines established by the offices of Career Services and Alumni Relations.

If you are a student under the age of 18, or a Mentor who learns of a Mentee under the age of 18, please contact the appropriate office to discuss University policies and procedures (Mentors – Please contact Alumni Relations/Mentees – Please contact Career Services.)

Go to the website.

The University makes no representations or warranties as to the conduct of its alumni. The mentor/mentee agrees that he/she bears all risks associated with the use of any information on the Pitt-Greensburg Mentoring Network/College Central Network (CCN) website and any other interactions with mentor/mentee through the Pitt-Greensburg Mentoring Network/College Central Network (CCN) website. The University of Pittsburgh expressly denies liability for the conduct of individuals working in the Network.
