Job & Internship Research

There are a number of different tools that you can use in your job and internship search. Networking is a great way to learn about companies and positions.  Job boards are another good tool, and there are hundreds of them.  We encourage you to be vigilant when applying to positions and to research opportunities and employers well before applying.  While we hope that  you will not encounter any fraudulent job or internship postings, we realize that fraudulent employers exist and are sometimes difficult to spot.  Review the below document for common red flags to look for and tips for researching companies and opportunities.
