In order to make the most of an undergraduate experience, students are recommended to participate in
Career Center workshops and other co-curricular experiences through the
Division of Student Affairs, discuss their career interests with a
career specialist in the Career Center, and explore career options before junior year. One of the ways in which students may
explore career options would be to review job descriptions. Many recruitment companies post job opportunities online. Students may better educate themselves on prospective employment opportunities by visiting recruitment websites such as the ones listed below.Bilingual PeopleBilingual People organizes Europe's largest and most exciting Career Fair dedicated to Bilingual and Multilingual Professionals.
