Opportunities for Undergraduate Students
Career Services Paraprofessionals (CSP). The Career Center employs 20-25 undergraduates as paraprofessionals each year. CSPs are recruited and hired in the Spring semester for positions that begin the following Fall semester. The CSP role is a paid position.
Summer Interns. Two summer interns are hired annually to staff outreach events, review application documents, and assist staff with ongoing projects and tasks. Typically, applications for the internships are accepted in March. This is a paid position.
Advisory Committee. This volunteer committee participates in the ongoing review and evaluation of the services of The Career Center and advises the Director and staff on career and professional development needs of students. The Committee meets 3-4 times per semester for 1 hour.
The Career Center employs 10-12 graduate students annually. Each graduate student has responsibilities tied to a specific functional area and meets with students who utilize our drop-in services.
Mock Interviewer. Our mock interview program is staffed by volunteer graduate students whose professional interests are related to human resources.
Practicums. From time-to-time, we host practicums for graduate students in counseling or higher education.
Students can volunteer to assist with our big events - the Graduate and Professional School Fair and the Illini Career and Internship Fair.
