English Majors who secure jobs or an internship while they are still in school helps them to build transferable skills that they cannot get in the classroom. Students also build professional networks and give themselves a competitive edge in the workforce—students who have work experience often receive more job offers and are offered a higher starting salary.

Job and internship announcements are posted regularly to English Commons, Career Aggie at https://career-services.usu.edu/career-aggie, and the 2nd Floor Bulletin Board in RWST. Announcements are also sent to students’ e-mail addresses.

Students interested in earning academic credit for working at  jobs or internships where they are using their English major-related skills should contact English Department Coordinator Shanan Ballam at shanan.ballam@usu.edu to set up appointment.
