Did you know that a number of employers’ Fall recruiting activity has already started? And that Fall recruiting periods are often recruiting talent for Summer 2020 internships or full-time jobs?Well, it’s true (if a bit wild). Employers like Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, Amazon and many more have already begun accepting resumes for the roles they’ll be interviewing for this Fall – and in some cases, you’ll need to apply before Fall Quarter even begins.
Fall recruiting is most common for Accounting, Finance, Investment, Consulting, and heavily-technical opportunities – don’t yet see internships listed in Handshake or other areas that are of interest to you? Follow our tips below to be sure you’re covering your bases in identifying opportunities, but also know that the peak recruiting period for Summer internship roles outside of those industries and areas noted above is Winter Quarter (January – March), with some recruitment lingering into Spring Quarter.
- Check Handshake (and not just once – make it part of your weekly routine!):
- McKinsey’s Business Analyst Internship
- Dropbox’s Software Engineer Internship
- Goldman Sachs’ 2020 Summer Analyst Internship
- Deloitte’s Risk & Financial Advisory – Analytics Internship
- Southwest Airlines’ Summer 2020 Internships (various)
- Amazon’s AWS Sales Internship
- JPMorgan Chase & Co’s Wealth Management Internship
- National Geospatial Intelligence Agency’s Student Internship Program
- E&J Gallo Winery’s Summer Business Systems Internship
- And many more! This is just a small sample of internship listings – many more, as well as full-time June 2020 start-date opportunities, can be found in Handshake as well.
- Check organizational websites:
- Many companies are posting opportunities to their site, whether or not they’re also posting to Handshake. Have a particular company in mind where you’d like to intern or work in Summer 2020? Be sure to check out their website.
- Not seeing positions posted but not sure what that means about a company’s recruiting/hiring timeline? Connect with recruiters or alums on LinkedIn to inquire about application and recruitment timelines, or connect with advisers in your department or coaches in the Career Centers on campus to gain insights into the process.
- Follow companies on LinkedIn and other social media platforms for timelines and updates
- Many companies announce to their social media followings as their recruitment timelines begin. Follow recruiters and/or organizational pages to be ‘in the know’!
