Career and Internship Connections (CICs)
Career and Internship Connections are career events in New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston and Los Angeles held over the January break. The employers that attend are likely not recruiting at CWRU during the academic year, but they'd be happy to meet you in their local city. These events are an excellent opportunity for networking and interviewing for internships and full-time positions.
How It Works
- The morning (9:30 – 11:30 a.m.) consists of a career fair, open to all undergraduates from the consortium schools, and the afternoon (12:30 – 5 p.m.) consists of pre-arranged interviews.
- Students apply for interviews online by creating an account, uploading a resume, and submitting it to individual positions of interest by December 3, 2012 at 11:59 p.m.
- During the morning, all registered participants, with or without interviews, can attend the career fair to obtain information about organizations and open positions.
- Some employers attending the career fair may leave room on their interview schedules and add students based on their morning interactions.
- Students attending the CICs are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. A site for travel-share for CWRU students only has been set up. To access the travel-share site, log in to CWRULink via MyCareer using your Case ID and password. You'll find the information in the Announcements section, within the article about the CICs.

- Upload a resume, cover letter and other required documents. Hover over the "Documents" tab and select "Upload a Document". The Career Center recommends having your resume and cover letter reviewed by a staff member first! ·
- Search for positions. Once you've uploaded a resume, you can search for specific positions using the Employer Search function. Or try a one-click search and search by city (New York, Boston, Washington, D.C. or Los Angeles).
- Apply for positions. At the bottom of the position description will be a button marked "Apply." Clicking it will allow you to select which uploaded documents to attach to your application or tell you which application documents you are missing. Once uploaded documents are selected, your application will be submitted for the employer to review. You can track your status under the "Applications" tab on the "Home" page.
