Some of the biggest benefits of your Careers4Terps account in less than five minutes.Written by Mark Rickson, Peer Career Educator
Careers4Terps (C4T), our community’s personal job location service, is one of the most underutilized resources on our campus. Employers who post job openings in C4T are specifically looking for Terps and Terp Alumni to fill positions in which they have openings. The best part? If you’ve already prepared your profile, all you have to do is log on ( careers.umd.edu/careers4terps), click on students, and you’re ready to use Careers4Terps!
At any given time there are over 3,000 jobs posted in the C4T database! To make it even easier, you can set up a continuous search for the specific types of jobs or internships you’d like and receive an email when new jobs fitting your criteria are posted!
Go to the “Jobs and Internships” drop down menu on the left side of the page. After clicking on the “Search Positions” button, click on “Saved Searches” and decide what categories of job postings you’d like to receive and how often you wish to receive email updates.
Not only does C4T house our jobs and internships database, but it also serves as the gateway to our free online resources (Focus2, Vault, Candid Career, InterviewStream, and GoinGlobal) and as an appointment scheduling and event RSVP system. Check out the events calendar to sign up for upcoming opportunities and schedule an appointment with the appropriate person for your situation.
Not sure if your C4T profile is up to date? September is the perfect time to check -- and remember to make sure to check the email that is listed in you Careers4Terps account!
