Hot Jobs and Cool Internships for Engineering, Technology and Physical Science

Years ago, the Career Center sent out a weekly email to Seniors called Hot Jobs and to Sophomores and Juniors an email called Cool Internships.  Mostly we did this to ensure that students remembered that employers are putting positions into the system constantly. The staff looked at all the new job openings in our posting system, picking out 5-6 examples of the broad variety of postings and reminding students to be using the system and to search widely. Here is a new version of that same idea.  There are so many jobs and internships in the Handshake system, and sometimes I worry that students are just not seeing them.

Before the list, I want to take this time to remind you of two things:

  1. Don’t base when you apply by the Application Date!!!  The Apply By Date in Handshake does not mean much in most cases. That is the date by which the posting will come off the system, not when the organization will be looking at candidates.  This means you should apply as close to the Posted Date as you can (when your materials are ready).
  2. The list below contains postings I found interesting. I tried to find ones that were looking for a variety of students and postings that might not get everyone’s attention on their own. I selected geographically diverse entries as well. There are lots and lots and lots of jobs and internships in Handshake right now and we get more daily.

Look for yourself at
