With the end of the semester rapidly approaching, then finals and Christmas vacation, it’s hard to think about summer. Chronologically, summer is six months away, but when itct comes to finding a summer internship, the time is NOW. Xavier has partnered with Koru, an organization that helps students increase their exposure to employers. For more than two years, Koru has helped students launch meaningful careers at top employers such as Amazon, Airbnb, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yelp and Zillow.

With Koru, students can match their individual strengths to real jobsat Koru’s growing network of companies, showcase who they are and what they can do, apply to positions through Koru’s talent portfolio, and get personalized feedback on where they stand and how they can improve.Currently, Koru has positions in financial services, media, and consumer and tech sectors. Nearly all employers agree that having pre-professional experience is a requirement for entrance into their organizations. Experiential learning in the form of internships or research is an absolute must for students to be competitive and now is the time to apply for summer positions.

There are many January or February application deadlines, so students should be productive during the holiday break and apply through Koru. For more details, go to: www.jobfinder.com or www.joinkoru.com.
