Job databases are easy ways to explore and find job and internship opportunities all over the world. These websites are like Handshake but much bigger (hence the “external” title). While they are helpful resources, keep in mind that they’re not Carleton-specific and to stand out, it is highly encouraged to make a personal connection with someone who works at the organization.
