Job Search Tools

The process of looking for a professional opportunity that’s the right fit will involve developing a thoughtful, multi-faceted search strategy. The below resources are meant offer guidance on getting started, but students should book an appointment with JMC’s Career Consultant to develop a plan customized to their specific interests and goals. 

MSU Career Tools

Created by MSU Career Services, this online database offers an array of career-related resources, including links to vetted third-party, field-specific job search sites. 


MSU’s free career management website is a one-stop shop for:

  • Internship, part-time, and full-time job postings for MSU students and recent grads
  • Information about MSU’s on-campus Career Fairs
  • A roster of all on-campus career, professional development, and recruitment-related events

Handshake is also where students are able to schedule advising appointments with Career Consultants across campus.


Madison students are encouraged to invest time in professional relationship-building throughout their time at MSU as part of their overall job search strategy. LinkedIn is a great tool not only to connect with other Spartans (and Madisonians through JMC’s LinkedIn Group) but to explore what folks with similar interests are pursuing professionally.
