More and more Carlson School students are finding success searching for internships and full-time jobs outside of Minneapolis due to their interest in pursuing niche markets or exploring other parts of the country. The process of a national job search is quite different than on-campus recruiting, so you may need to adjust your expectations for process and timelines. How does a National Job Search differ from on-campus recruiting?

With National Job Search:

  • You apply for jobs on company career sites or through networking contacts
  • You meet company representatives on the phone, at national alumni events, or at trade shows
  • You need to seek out company representatives to research the company
  • There may be small or possibly no base of Carlson alumni with experience in the roles you're seeking
  • Hiring timelines may be much later in spring semester
  • Online presence is important for introduction to alumni and national recruiters

This page provides students with a guide to their national job search process. In addition, students can meet with a  UBCC Career Coach 
to discuss questions about the process or to get connected to resources outside of Minnesota.
