Getting Experience - Internships & Student Employment

Employers consistently rank "on-the-job experience" as a top qualification that new college graduates should possess. Listed below are some resources for Clarion University students interested in getting experience:

  • Federal Work Study - Community Service Positions with Area Agencies - A limited number of off-campus positions provide students with work-learning opportunities related to education or career goals. 

  • Part-Time Jobs - Establish an account at Clarion Career Connection to access  a database of part-time jobs currently available on campus and in the Clarion area.

  • Internships - Access the Internship Strategies Checklist; information pertaining to paid, unpaid, and for academic credit internships, and links to internship providers.

  • Summer/Seasonal Jobs - Access summer and seasonal job information.

  • Recognized Student Organizations - Participating in student organizations is a great way to link your personal involvement on campus with your professional goals. Serving on a committee, planning an event, or holding a leadership position are only a few of the kinds of experiences you can add to your resume as clear evidence of skills that employers require.

  • Community Service/Volunteerism - Learn what steps you need to take to 1) register your interest in volunteering; 2) access a list of agencies, civic groups, service organizations, businesses, and special programs that currently seek individual and group volunteers; and 3) report your service hours.
