Prospective Students and Career Statistics

Appalachian State University Resources

ASU Career Development Center is your one-stop shop for career preparation, including Career Gear.  Make sure to use as many of the available resources as possible, including resume building, cover letter services, and a range of workshops.  Peer Career also provides some information for environmentally-related careers.

Internship and Job Opportunities

An internship is normally an 8-12 week (e.g. 10-week) experience in the summer (May-August), usually following the Spring semester of your Sophomore and/or Junior years.  Some are paid, others unpaid, but in both cases, a quality internship will be a good investment for your career by giving you first hand experience in the types of jobs and workplaces that interest you.  Internships are also an excellent opportunity to start making connections within the professional and/or academic community of which you wish to become a part.
