If you have not yet secured employment for this summer, you should make an appointment with an advisor from OCS or OPIA to go over your search so far and to explore your options. If you have secured a position, please take a moment to complete the Summer Employment Survey in CSM. Whether you accepted a job offer, are considering offers, or are seeking employment, please take a moment to complete the survey. It will be a huge help to the career offices as well as your classmates. The information you provide through the Summer Employment Survey will be included in our annual “Who Works Where” list, which is a valuable tool used by many students.

Job fairs can offer great networking opportunities and relatively easy access to employers from a particular geographic area or practice specialty.

Check regularly for upcoming opportunities, as well as information on HLS policies regarding these fairs.
As we approach the end of the semester and you begin thinking about your summer job and your preparations for the HLS Early Interview Program (EIP), we want to give you a brief overview of the important, and sometimes time sensitive, information OCS will be sending in the following months.

As you are considering your options for coursework for next year, think about your long-term career plans, and how those plans are reflected on your transcript during interviews. Your narrative will be more convincing if your transcripts reflect what you say are your interests. You should, however, also be taking courses that are of general interest to you. Do not worry if you are unable to get each course that you believe would add the most value to your post-graduation career pursuits. In almost every case there are multiple courses that can provide the necessary study and training for your long term goals. For more information and suggestions, see the HLS website on Programs of Study.
