NUPRSSA Tips: Applying to Co-ops/Jobs

We’re back again with a few helpful tips from some of our executive board members!  As the application makes its way back around, keep in mind some of this advice:

1. Try and get a gauge for the office culture.  Whether it’s at your interview, through LinkedIn, or described on the company’s website, this is wildly important when deciding where you want to spend 40 hours of your week.
– Jessica, secretary

2. Utilize your search skills!  Find out as much about the company as possible and tailor your resume to match what the company is looking for in its employees.  This will help your resume to stand out, and you’ll also be prepared for the rest of the application process should you be invited for an interview!
– Gabi, social media

3. If you can’t get an interview for an open job position, reach out to the HR department of the company and ask if they participate in informational interviews.  This is a great way to get your foot in the door and to make an impression on your industry peers!
– Kerry, fundraising
