Happy Thanksgiving!

By Kelsey McWilliams, Marketing Intern at CU-Boulder Career Services

Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you’ve all been enjoying the holiday break and spending time with family and friends. Among the many things we should all be thankful for, Career Services has several to add to your list!

Be thankful for...
  • 360 active internships on Career Buffs, our online job and internship database. These employers are just waiting for CU students like you to apply for these internships.
  • 847 active jobs on Career Buffs. These include temporary, part-time, seasonal, full-time: entry level, full-time: 2-5 years of professional experience, and full-time: 5+ years of professional experience, so be thankful that there are positions for everyone.
  • Be even more thankful that these numbers of active jobs and internships on our site are about to increase significantly. Employers are less likely to post during the hectic holiday season, so check back around January 1st for many more opportunities.
  • In addition, be thankful that the job market is improving. According to a CNBC article, 114,000 new jobs were created last month, and the U.S. unemployment rate finally fell below 8 percent. Things are slowly but surely looking up, so take advantage and start applying!

We at Career Services are thankful for you, the students and alumni who keep our office running. We’re open five days a week and eager to help you, so schedule an appointment online or come by our office in the Center for Community, Room N352.
