Week of June 17th, 2019 

“The Pessimist Sees Difficulty In Every Opportunity.
The Optimist Sees Opportunity In Every Difficulty.”
– Winston Churchill


Important Announcement: 

In the past, Health Professions Advising has utilized the newsletter to advertise off-campus jobs, internships, volunteer experiences and research opportunities relevant to pre-health students. Moving forward, we will instruct all employers with off campus opportunities to the Career Center at CSU so they can post these opportunities on the Handshake database. Any on-campus jobs, internships, volunteer experiences or research opportunities will still be advertised in the newsletter.
In doing this, you will have one centralized resource where you can find opportunities relevant to you in real time. It will also ensure employers are being reviewed and approved by CSU prior to you being employed by them.
To view off-campus jobs, internships, volunteer experiences and research opportunities, please access Handshake here: https://app.joinhandshake.com/login.
