Job Search Resources

This page is designed to provide you with resources to pursue professional opportunities including internships and entry-level positions in IMC. First of all, there are many Illinois State University resources that you will want to take full advantage of, e.g., Marketing Department Internships, Hire-a-Redbird, and the Illinois State University Career Center. Make sure that you use all of these resources and participate fully in the opportunities here on campus.

Job Search Strategy

  • Join LinkedIn. It is an excellent professional network and has become an essential job search/professional network resource.
  • You should begin to develop a Portfolio that exhibits your work and experience - that you can email (pdf) or post online - your LinkedIn Profile is a great start.
  • Talk to the IMC faculty about Social Media Job Search strategies.
  • An added value that IMC majors should complete and include on their resume/portfolio is Google AdWords and Google Analytics - complete the certification test and make sure this is highlighted on all of your materials.

For IMC jobs, you will also want to conduct your own targeted job campaign. Go after those IMC jobs that you are interested in. You can begin your process by using our IMC Job Search list, which samples web sites that include resources such as job descriptions, resume writing, interview tips, and job banks.
