How to get a job or internship or scholarship
Job and internship and scholarship opportunities are numerous, but they will not fall into your lap! Searching the web and emailing your resume to random companies is not a very effective way to get jobs and internships.
AGES students can use the jobs, internships, and scholarships database below to find curated lists relevant to their needs. This database is updated daily, and is only available to students logged in with their @appstate.edu email address. Please be sure you are logged in with your @appstate.edu email address to view the database; we cannot give access to those with external email addresses so please do not ask.

Tips for finding Jobs and Internships
#1. Lauri Miller will forward all internship and job opportunities we receive from our alumni network to Dr. Liutkus-Pierce, who will add them to the AGES Newsletter each Monday. Be sure to read your emails with the AGES Newsletter!!! These newsletters are not available online, but the department has a newsletter archive if you missed one. Note: the newsletter archive is only available to those with an @appstate.edu email account. We also post many of our internship leads from faculty and alumni on our Facebook Page. This is a very active page, and many of our alumni are members.
2. Go to regional meetings that offer continuing education credits for licensure and professional development. You will meet industry contacts in person (this is vitally important) and will be able to get your resume into their hands in a more informal environment. Meetings not to miss are the AEG Carolinas Section Fall Field Trip and the Carolinas SME trips. Announcements for these meetings will be in your weekly newsletter.
3. Join professional societies so you can search their job ads. Many internship jobs are posted on society web pages and access is only available to members. Professional societies have very cheap student rates, so it is worth joining!
