Finding Opportunities: Internships, Research, Jobs, Graduate Programs

Honors College students pursue a variety of professional opportunities and preparation for advanced education with the support of the Rutgers community, the Rutgers Office of Career Exploration and Success (CES), alumni, and employers. Following a student's first-year, they are eligible to receive an invitation to the Honors College LinkedIn group to connect with the Honors College network of individuals pursuing various opportunities. In our LinkedIn group, students and Honors College alumni can learn more about how to build portfolios of skills and experiences that will prepare them for careers with purpose. 

Honors College students can utilize several resources to research and connect with internships, part-time positions, jobs, research opportunities, and other portfolio building opportunities:

  • Weekly opportunity emails including internships, jobs, networking events, scholarships, skill and knowledge-building opportunities, conferences, competitions, and more sent by our dean of professional development and alumni & corporate engagement
