St. Bonaventure University

Job search resources

Begin the job search by asking yourself the following questions:
  • In what part of the country or the world do I want to work?
  • What employers or industries excite me?
  • What particular work environment do I desire?
Next, register with Handshake to gain access to exclusive job and internship opportunities for SBU students and alumni.

Finally, these resources will help guide your search:

Researching employers

First, research companies and industries to find those that interest you, then apply to targeted companies, regardless of whether the firms are advertising open positions. Be sure to learn enough about the companies to ask informed questions at the interview and relate your qualifications to the needs of the organization.
