Searching For Opportunities

Before you can find and apply for a job or internship, you need to identify several realistic career paths and geographical locations. The more focused your vision for future employment, the easier the process can be. You can find a concise list of best search strategies in the Searching for an Internship or Full-Time Job document. The most effective way to identify potential opportunities is through networking. PantherLink, LinkedIn, the Internship Host Database, and online job boards are other ways to identify opportunities.


PantherLink-Logo[1]-1

Exclusively for HPU students and alumni, PantherLink is an online internship/job board. This tool allows students and alumni to access full-time, part-time, internship and volunteer opportunities posted directly by the employer or through Career & Internship Services.

NOTE: Please LOGIN using your HPU email address and password (the same username and password that you use to access Blackboard, Webmail, etc). You DO NOT need to register for an account; your information is already in the system. If you have difficulty logging in please contact Career Services.


LinkedIn-Logo

LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional networking tool. You can use LinkedIn to connect to professionals in organizations that interest you, HPU alumni, and actual job postings. LinkedIn is also a great tool for researching the job market within specific fields and geographic locations.


Internship Host Database

Please use these databases as resources to help you in your internship search. To access each database please contact a C&IS staff member for the password.
