Finding an Internship Through the FSU Career Center

Finding internship opportunities through the career center was a lot less difficult and time consuming than I’d always thought it would be. I may not be fully utilizing their services, but I was able to create a profile and submit my resume to multiple recruiters pretty quickly.

The first step in finding an internship through the Career Center is to create a profile and upload a resume. The navigation bar has a ‘profile’ tab, which leads to a series of pages that require some basic user information. There is also a ‘documents’ tab that allows for file uploading.

The second step is siging up for “Plus! Services.” This may take the Career Center a day to process. I don’t know what Plus! Services are, but once they’re open to users, a new ‘jobs’ tab appears as part of the navigation bar. I think all it took for be approved for Plus! Services was to check a button that said I’d made a profile. It was simple enough that I don’t remember what it took to sign up for them.

At this point, all that’s left is to click on ‘SeminoleLink Opportunities’ under the ‘jobs’ tab, change the Position Type to Internship, and search for mobile development jobs.

I’m still not sure if there is a better way to get access to these internship listings, but this seemed like an easy way to get started. You’re likely to find many development positions this way.
