No matter where you are in your career path, you need to check out two great resources for snagging that job or internship you want: the Entrepreneur Career Expo and One Day, One Job .com
Entrepreneur Career Expo
BASES and the CDC do a lot of different things to help students succeed in their careers, and this job fair is one of them.

I imagine most employers will be looking for coders and engineers but fuzzies, don’t lose hope! History and English majors often make great marketing interns. I believe our own Editor-in-Chief Christian (History major) is interning at SharpCast.
So get out there and strut your stuff. It’s Thursday Feb 28th, 1-4pm on the 2nd floor of Tressider. And don’t forget to prepare.
One Day, One Job
This is a really cool blog (and a clever name) started by a Cornell grad that discusses entry-level positions at a different company each day. They’ve covered some pretty cool companies like Netflix, Bear Naked Granola, and Nintendo. It’s a great resource for people who people who don’t know where to start looking for a job and don’t want to do the same old thing.
They also publish articles on job searching, on topics like How to Use Google to Find a Job. For internships, they’ve started a similar site called One Job, One Internship. Same idea, but for internships. So definitely check out this cool site. Subscribe to the RSS and get the thrill of a new job opportunity each day!
