Networking is an important component of an effective job or internship search. You can use CareerShift to find people’s contact information. Networking outreach can be done before you apply to a particular organization or around the same time you submit an application.

After you apply to an organization, enter the organization’s name and location into the Contacts search to find people who work there. Try to identify a contact related to the position you’re applying to or within the human resources department. You can do this by using the Advanced search function and entering keywords like: human resources, talent management/acquisition, recruiter or the team/division name related to your application.

Check if any alumni from your university work at companies of interest to you. You can easily find alumni contact information through CareerShift by entering the name of your university in the School Attended search bar, along with the company name and location.  Once you conduct a Contacts search, CareerShift provides you with a list of names, job titles, companies/organizations and professional email addresses. Similar to jobs, you can save individual contacts or searches.
