INSTRUCTIONS FOR STUDENTS TO REGISTER ON THE COLLEGE CAREER NETWORK (CCN) SO THEY CAN SEARCH INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES:
2. Upper menu "Students"
3. In the box, click "Sign Up" to register (Required: W #, password, and some contact/background student info)
4. To search internships once you've registered, from the Student Page, on the left click "Search My School's Jobs" (even though it's just internships)
and scroll down to click the "Paid Internship" box, then the "Begin Search" button. (To narrow a search by major, etc. you can select - though I recommend searching all internships; sometimes employers in a certain industry have internships that appeal to a wider group of students)
