Online Job Listing Services
If you haven’t already, create a profile for yourself at LinkedIn, the professional networking site. Start building your connections, beginning with your professors and your classmates. LinkedIn is a great way to find sources and track others in the industry, but it also can be set up to send you alerts when one of your connections makes the news or changes jobs, AND it can has great listings for jobs and internships. I have one alert set up for “journalism internships,” for example. One distinct advantage to LinkedIn is it will show you with each listing if there are any Hunter graduates at that company.
