JobTracks is a free site through the Career Center that any Missouri State student can use. However, I feel like it is unknown to so many students. Every time I do a Career Center presentation I try to emphasize how useful it can be. Are you looking for a job or an internship? JobTracks is the way to go.
As you’re using JobTracks, a simple search system makes it easy to find what you are looking for. Use the basic search to look for any full-time, part-time, or temporary position. Want to look for a paid internship? Use the advanced search to narrow down your search to an internship that fits your area of study.
Think this is all too good to be true? It’s not. I searched on JobTracks for about 20 minutes and found an internship I wanted to apply for. I sent in a résumé and within about a week heard back from the company. I had a couple phone interviews and was offered the internship. This is, of course, not guaranteed to happen all the time, but if you put the time into searching and give it a shot, chances are JobTracks can serve you in the same way it did me.
Happy hunting, and don’t forget to stop by or contact the Career Center if you are not registered for JobTracks!
