Job and Internship Databases

As you will soon realize, there are dozens of websites which post internships and job opportunities. 

As you seek opportunities, you may want to start with Handshakeour centralized platform where employers can post positions to Notre Dame students, as well as 800 other colleges and universities.

Please keep in mind that not every industry posts positions on Handshake, and many employers will only post 1 or 2 positions on Handshake even though they offer dozens of more opportunities. As such, an effective internship and job search strategy extends beyond opportunities posted on Handshake.

We offer our undergraduate students free access to resources listed below.

If you have any questions about which sites will be most helpful for you, don't be afraid to ask us for help.
