Cohen Sponsored Free Resource of the Week: CareerShift

Just as a reminder, altruistic careers mostly hire on a "just-in-time" basis, so most job openings now are for April start dates. Don't let this hinder your search! Use this time to network with companies (reach out to current employees and inquire about company culture, day-to-day tasks, etc), and keep looking through the job boards that William & Mary pays for you to access. This week I am highlighting CareerShift.


On Tribe Careers, scroll down and on the right it says "Jump To." CareerShift is the second site. CareerShift is a great resource to find the contact information of employers. Perhaps you found someone on LinkedIn to whom you want to reach, but you don't know their email. After Googling, you still can't find it. Click the "Contacts" tab of CareerShift and see if their info is there!
