Welcome to Career Support
We believe it is essential to prepare students for real-world experiences in the workplace including interviews, internships and career exploration. Our office is available to help students and alumni find full, part-time and summer jobs and internships. We give our students the tools and resources to allow them to fine tune their skills and prepare them for success upon graduation.
Through our services, students can explore majors and careers, get assistance with job search documents, get support for their job/internship search, prepare for interviews, get help with the graduate school application process, attend career events and workshops, and utilize our very own Coyote Careers online job board.

Coyote Careers is an online resource housing hundreds of internship and full-time job opportunities, as well as local and regional part-time positions and USD work-study and graduate assistant positions. The system is easy to use and allows you to review and save job postings, upload your resume and other career documents, apply for positions, and sign up for on-campus interviews.
An internship is a monitored work or volunteer experience where an individual has intentional learning goals and objectives throughout the experience. It serves as a bridge between the classroom and work world, where a student is assigned professional and/or pre-professional tasks and responsibilities. Internships may be paid or unpaid, and can be taken for academic credit. An internship is an amazing way to garner new skills and abilities needed in your field of choice.
This guide is a valuable tool for exploring careers and majors, writing your resume and cover letter, finding job and internship opportunities, networking, interviewing, graduate school application, life after college and more!
